Music and holidays in rural south-west France

Workshop holidays

Musatelier offers a venue for music and performing arts workshops in the lovely countryside of the Gironde estuary. Tutors are invited to direct workshops of three to eight days, for up to 24 participants. We can host workshops in other arts, as well as reading weeks.

We welcome performing groups who wish to spend some time in intensive rehearsal combined with relaxation.
Concerts can be arranged in local venues.

House-concerts - Musique à la maison

There is a local tradition of concerts in private houses which have suitable space. Musatelier boasts a large room with excellent acoustics, particularly suited to solo and small group performances (with an audience of up to 50 people); the charge is minimal, to cover the cost of electricity and cleaning.
The music-room is available for practices, rehearsals, and jam sessions.

Carol-singing/Chants de Noêl 2017

Samedi 9 décembre autour de la bibliotèque de St Dizant du Gua. On annoncera des autres dates pour chanter au bar Le Littoral et à l'Epicerie du Pérat, et aussi un soirée aux chandelles. M. le Maire dubbed us "Les Street Singers" for the experiment of carol-singing around St Dizant du Gua. People were a little wary of this English custom, but enjoyed it. Would you like us to sing for you? Book now!
