Automne Musical en Vallespir


Firmly established on the P-O musical calendar, now into its 12th edition, the renowned Automne musical en Vallespir (Amuvall) festival continues to promote and celebrate the best in regional, national and international music.

Organised by Musiques et Voix en Pays Catalans, the festival is a collection of 10 superb concerts by professional musicians across the 10 communes that make up the Communauté de Commune du Vallespir.

Artistic director, Christian Papis, shares his particular passion for classical singing and opera but also brings together a range of other genres and styles.

During the festival, why not tie in the concert with a visit to the Musée d’art moderne? The Musée de MúSIC is offering FREE entry on presentation of your concert ticket!

And perhaps a little apéro or a meal in one of the many great bars and restaurants across the Vallespir. Several are offering a 5% discount during the festival. Check out the list of participating restaurants here.
