Rencontres de violoncelle de Bélaye

Art director: Roland Pidoux

XXXVth “Festival des Rencontres de Violoncelle de Bélaye”

Bélaye is celebrating thirty-four years of cello and chamber music concerts.

35 wonderful years of welcoming the finest French and international musicians to this small medieval village perched above the Lot valley. Their presence has made the Bélaye concerts an unmissable event for the French School of Violoncello, and an international showcase for chamber music.

We look forward to welcoming you to Bélaye.
Benefiting from our continued successful growth Les Rencontres represent even more than ever one of the most significant cultural events in Occitanie.

The renown of Les Rencontres de Bélaye owes a huge debt to the artistic force of Roland Pidoux, to the magic of his programming and the respect and admiration he engenders among both musicians and public.

The team of volunteers who work so tirelessly each year, our partners, both public and private who sponsor us, all play an essential part. However, without the support of our members, Les Rencontres would not exist – they really are our backbone. We do have need of this loyal commitment to ensure our continuity. Please confirm your support or rejoin by sending the Membership Form (Bulletin d’Adhésion).  Like all Members you will benefit from priority reservations for concerts, free entry to the seminars (carte privilège) and you will be directly associated with the life of Les Rencontres.
