  • Our administration team & contacting us – some changes: Musique-Cordiale consists of 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. We usually employ a festival administrator (in 2018, two people  – Marie-Luise Scheiterer and Marlene Rudloff shared the job during the period June – August). At other times, all tasks are performed by members of the Conseil d’administration (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 des Moulins, 83440 Seillans, France)
