Born in 2006 in the courtyard of the Château de Solliès-Pont and arriving in Le Pradet in 2015, the “Music at the Court” Festival, which will take place from August 18 to 23 at the Espace des Arts, will once again beautiful on the piano.
Since its arrival in Pradetan land, the artistic event has continued to evolve to better adapt to the tastes of spectators of all ages who love classical music and the piano. The secrets of such enthusiasm? An intimate and comfortable setting, a Steinway D piano on stage, high quality acoustics, a meeting between virtuosos and enthusiasts… And an attractive price that has not changed since 2006 thanks to the involvement of the festival’s partners ( the city of Pradet, the Department and the Metropolis TPM).
On display, as every year, piano of course, but also chamber music.
