Music workshops are offered from the 14th to the 18th of August 2017 in choral singing (adult and children), in vocal technique, in the flute and also the Celtic harp.
2014 was a trial year. A handful of amateur and professional musicians, wishing to maintain a musical tradition in Tourtoirac and the Pay d’Ans, organised a workshop for choral singing and a workshop for the Celtic harp.
2015 and 2016 were years filled with superb musical events and your increasing participation has enabled us, in 2017, to offer a programme which is even more diverse, with more concerts and new musical surprises.
We offer free access to these events which we owe to your numerous subscriptions and donations. Renewal of your subscriptions for 2017 will be available from the beginning of March and we are counting on you. We must carry on together for everyone’s pleasure !
