Born seven years ago, the Rose Festival and music festival will be held on the weekend of May 18 and 19. Between flowers and notes, the program.

For seven years now, the Camon Rose Festival has been enriched with a music festival which gives this event a regional cultural dimension. Classical concerts of very high quality are of major cultural interest for our territory. Through the venues, church and abbey, it contributes to the promotion of heritage.

The commitment of around forty volunteers from the Ostal per totis association to bring this celebration to life is remarkable and appreciated by the artists, who are well received and delighted to share this day.

Two days of music

This year’s Music Festival program offers a choral concert, “La Main Harmonique Kaléidoscope”, on Saturday May 18 at 8:30 p.m. in the church. These are polyphonic songs from the Renaissance, the adult price is €15.

On Sunday May 19 at 2 p.m., the Hélado Caséro group will perform in the cloister with a clarinet-accordion duo based on popular Latin American repertoire (entrance €8). Finally, at 4 p.m. there will be a free concert with the Fanfare de Pocket group on the village square.
