The Provençal Festival was born in 2005 as a sister festival to the International Festival of European Youth Orchestras (Florence) and following a collaboration with the Orchestre des Jeunes de la Mediterrannée (OJMED). Now in its 17th year, the Festival has hosted over 3000 young musicians representing Canada, USA, UK & Ireland, Spain, Holland, Belgium, Portugal, Germany, Latvia, Estonia, Switzerland, South Korea, Hong Kong, China, Australia, France, Israel, Norway, Brasil, Taiwan and Denmark. Youth, student and amateur orchestras from all over the world are welcome to participate, and each year the Festival is able to host a guest choir and band in specially selected venues.

Sight-seeing opportunities throughout this area are myriad and varied: you can spend your free time in between performances soaking up the Mediterranean sun on sandy beaches and café-clad squares, visit local markets, canoe under the Roman aqueduct of Pont du Gard, follow in the footsteps of Cezanne and Van Gogh through the cobbled, winding streets of Aix and Arles or admire the wildlife in the wild Camargue. All sight-seeing arrangements and excursions as well as accommodation to suit all budgets, instrument hire and transportation can be booked as part of your Festival package. Please just contact us for possible itineraries and quotations to suit your individual preferences and requirements.
