A Word from the President

Our hard work in bringing to fruition the various activities of our association has allowed us to show to each and every one our willingness and determination to work not only in the discovery and protection of our heritage, but also in animating and valuing all the riches of this Périgord which we love so much.

The support, from now on, of numerous groups gives witness to the recognition of all the hard work of the past five years. It’s for this reason, while keeping alive the spirit of the Music Week, we have decided to spread our activities throughout the ‘Communaute de Communes’ of Terrasson, Hautefort and Thenon during the summer season but also either side of it.

This development gives us many advantages, namely in grants available, our ability to welcome more people, increasing the number of concerts and improving our financial basis- all of this in the best interests of everyone- residents and summer visitors to this part of the Périgord Noir.


All of this enables all of us- students, choir members, musicians and accompanists- to be participants in our Music Week, which allows us the opportunity to get to know this part of the region even more, a model of well-being in a natural and architecturally rich setting. Our participation, with the other associations and residents of Tourtoirac, in helping gain the trophy Globe Trotter 2018’ from France Bleue Périgord, reinforced our wish to be involved in the life of this region.
