The 1001 Notes Festival - Event in Limoges

The 1001 Notes Festival has taken place every summer since 2005 at iconic venues in Limousin, from late July to early August. Its goal is to share classical music with as many people as possible, by offering beautiful and simple music made accessible and brought to life. This involves opening up classical music to other music styles, like jazz and world music, in order to explore all its facets.

The festival also aims to raise the profile of up-and-coming artists. By hosting a composer in residence every year, 1001 Notes celebrates creativity and innovation. The Le Maître et l'Élève project gives a young artist the chance to shadow and collaborate with a big name in classical music.

During the intervals, dinners and picnics, and at the end of the concerts, artists, volunteers, members and festival-goers can meet up and chat over a beer. To enable children to appreciate all the beauty of music, a series of First Concerts are given, just like real concerts with musicians on stage and musical masterpieces on the programme.
