Festival "Musique en Périgord"
The festival "Musique en Périgord" takes place in july and august
During a fortnight, the "Musique en Périgord" Festival offers concerts of classical and contemporary music, mostly held in the churches of the Vézère valley. Born in 1989 in the roman church of Audrix, a small village between Vézère and Dordogne rivers.
The main goals of the festival are to bring music in rural areas, attract diverse audiences by programming diverse musics and familiarize children with the different genres of music. In collaboration with the local authorities, "Musique en Périgord" is committed to prepare the audience of tomorrow by allowing children to consider music like a joy and not an obligation.
This year, the festival will take place in the churches of Audrix, Les Eyzies de Tayac, Saint Chamassy, Saint Cyprien, on the banks of the river Vézère in Le Bugue, in the Cultural centre of Saint Cyprien, in the park of the Campagne Castle and in the Gouffre de Proumeyssac.
