30th Musique en Périgord Festival


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".
