Music Valley - La haute vallée de l'Allier, Auvergne, FranceMusic in Auvergne :
  The high valley of the Allier.
in the districts of Brioude and Langeac



More than just a Festival

Concerts and music - 2019

 concerts + other musical events

Programme des concerts


"Music-valley" is the High valley of the river Allier, from the district of Brioude to the district of Langeac, in the department of Haute Loire, Auvergne,  southern France.   The music season in the valley is a relaxed affair; the venues are mostly small, the performers good - often top quality, but the prices reasonable. Some concerts are "give what you want", some are free, most are less than 20 Euros. Only the full concerts in the basilica at Brioude and those organised by the La Chaise Dieu music festival are a bit more. This is a fringe without a festival, a summer of music for pleasure, organised by musicians themselves, volunteers, villages and cultural associations.
