Musiques et Voix en Pays Catalans (previously known as the Formation de Chambre des Pays Catalans – FCPC) is based in Céret, and was originally formed in 2007 to ensure that people in the Pyrénées-Orientales have the opportunity to listen to classical music played by world class musicians, at an affordable price.
In 2014 they welcomed Christian Papis, who has worked alongside Pavarotti, Domingo, Carreras, Alagna, Dessay, Berganza, Van Dam, Hampson, Ramey and many other stars of the operatic world, as he took over the role of Artistic Director. At the same time the popular autumn Music Festival, Automne Musical en Vallespir, expanded to 10 concerts to include Les Cluses, L’Albère and Le Perthus.
In 2015 the name of the association changed to Musiques et Voix en Pays Catalans to better reflect Christian Papis’ wide range of experience and musical interests.
The programme for the 2017 autumn Music Festival will be announced soon.
