  • Our administration team & contacting us – some changes: Musique-Cordiale is a small set of organisations with limited resources. It depends heavily not only on voluntary effort, ticket sales and subscriptions but also on limited public subventions (covering about 13% of our costs) and generous donations which vary from time to time. So the jobs we can offer involve considerable responsibility yet it is hard for us to afford to offer competitive long-term employment and career opportunities. We were very happy that Hannah Stodart stayed with us in the vital role of festival administrator from 2015-2017 and we hoped that Barbara Hooijmeijer would also be able to stay awhile, gaining experience over time before moving on to posts with more assured prospects. Unfortunately for us, Barbara has decided to return to a post with Theatre Tréteaux de France – Centre dramatique national, where she worked previously. We wish her well too. For the time being, the festival is being organised by the ‘old team’, augmented by Monica Herrera-Pavia, who is in charge of promotion and our educational out-reach programme (including Les Choristes Jeunes) and by members of the conseil d’administartion (the Board); so please contact Pippa Pawlik (artistic director) or Jonathan Barker (treasurer) about anything to do with your participation in the festival choir, orchestra or team of helpers – or about your travel, accommodation, expenses, music, concert tickets, rehearsal schedules – or just about anything else! We hope to attract back  – or recruit – others to help us during the festival itself to make it another resounding success this year.
The festival is organised by the Association Musique Cordiale (217 Chemin desMoulins, 83440 Seillans, France)
