We appreciate your generosity and you’ll have a great evening if you come and welcome Musique Cordiale back to France this summer. Memorable music. Good food and drink! Bubbly aperitifs before dinner. We value (and need) support and funds to put on the events that Musique Cordiale offers. In addition to buying tickets and coming to our concerts, we welcome supporters who are able to contribute further by making donations, becoming Friends of the Festival, offering accommodation or help. Each summer, the association which runs the summer festival also holds a FUND-RAISING dinner of good food, wine and musical entertainment. Please consider joining us at this rewarding event!

You can buy a standard ticket OR you can buy multiple tickets for this year’s pre-festival gala dinner & musical evening. For each ticket for an existing Friend, please buy at the discounted Friend rate. (You can also join as a Friend and immediately use the discounted rate: please go to our SUPPORT US page first). Or, if you’re feeling generous, we invite you to choose your own price! If you are buying 8 or more tickets to make up a table, please pay for at least 8 tickets and use the Table (per person) price. (Please book as early as possible – and preferably by 30 June). For WHOLE TABLE BOOKINGS, please pay the full price per person  ASAP or at least by 20 JULY.

French donors to l’association Musique Cordiale (FR), which runs the festival, can obtain a Certificat du Don to offset against tax. For our UK donors, we are  supported by The Musique-Cordiale Trust, an independent charity registered in England (no. 1167732), allowing British taxpayers to add Gift Aid  (25%) to their contributions as Donors or Friends (in GB pounds), meaning that we receive the donation and also reclaim the tax paid on the income that paid for it. The Trust help us, for example, to award bursaries to young musicians applying to join the Academy, to invite exceptional teachers and conductors to lead the ensembles or to support a particular event or activity during the Festival in Provence. We have also needed to sustain our operation and on-going costs during the pandemic period when we could put on concerts and support our musicians and choir only in England. We are so please to be back in our home in the Var in August 2023 for a new exciting concert series. Funds raised also help the support the huge annual costs – and all the work involved year-round – to bring you the high quality music that that Musique Cordiale offers. Please contact us or go to for information and to support The Musique-Cordiale Trust.
