30th Musique en Périgord Festival

audrix

The festival "Musique en Périgord" was first held in 1989 in the Roman church at Audrix, a small village located between the Vézère and Dordogne rivers

The theme of the Festival has been modified but its goals remain unchanged.
The Festival is intended to introduce talented young musicians as well as recognized artists, to bring classical music to the rural environment, and to provide great music in small places. It strives to attract different audiences by offering programs of diverse musical genres and tastes, and hopes to introduce children to classical as well as to other kinds of music.

A wide variety of music for everyone.

From July 31th to August 12, "Musique en Périgord" will hold its 30th Festival.
As usual, the program will offer a wide range of music: Chamber music, Baroque music, Jazz, Occitanian Music, Musics from all over the world. The festival will also include a concert catering to young audiences.

The concerts will take place in the churches in Audrix, Les Eyzies, Saint-Chamassy, on the banks of the Vézère river in Le Bugue, in the auditorium of Saint-Cyprien, the communal hall in Audrix and the park of the Campagne Castle. Le Gouffre de Proumeyssac will also participate in "Musique en Périgord".

La Ballade d’Orphée | Baroque Music

Tuesday August 7 9.00 PM / Church | Saint-Chamassy

Company Alla Voce
Choir Concordia Conductor Belinda Drew

Camille Slosse soprano, Anne Maugard mezzo soprano, Pascal Gourgand baritone bass are passionately fond of opera in small ensembles.
The cellists Sarah Ledoux and Vérène Westphal, took part in the creation of the Orchestre de Chambre Pelléas.

Accompanied by the Choir Concordia from Saint-Chamassy, Alla Voce is committed to a pedagogical collaboration between a professional ensemble and a local choir.

La Ballade d’Orphée draws on the famous myth of the musician poet. The singers, embodying alternately the People, Hell, the God of Love, Eurydice and of course Orpheus, travel between the land of the living and the dead, between the Gods and the mortals. The cellos at the same time resound like the trumpets in Hell, sing like birds in Paradise, vibrate in the style of the strings of Orpheus’s lyre.
