For the second consecutive year, Criquet Projets, the alias of American producer/actor Gates McFadden and the musician/Artistic Director James McFadden-Talbot, organises the unmissable event for classical music lovers in l'Herault.
"Not just another music festival." The two creators of Festival à Pélican propose a different kind of outdoor event in an unexpected location, bring together the natural surroundings and the ancient stone buildings of an ancestral family wine domaine, and fill it all with music.
The two evenings in July will be serenaded by the Orphan Bird Quartet, whose name comes from the legend of a medieval beast with a peacock's neck, an eagle's beak, a swan's feet, and a crane's body.
On the program, each of the evenings shines a different color: Maurice Ravel, Dmitri Shostakovich and Samuel Barber as well as popular traditional dance music.
