This Festival is the oldest of our network and welcomes every year around 300 instrumentalists coming from whole Europe and sometimes from the whole world because our Federation got closer to Russia, to China, to India, to Brazil and to Quebec.

It is also the longest Festival with a meeting of almost two weeks, punctuated with around fifty concerts spread on all the territory of Charente-Maritime.

Every morning of the Festival are used for the interational rehearsals constituted by the orchestras of any nationalities, in order to prepare the two closing concerts which take place every year in Jonzac and in Pons.

Symphonic orchestras, strings orchestras, choirs, and music chambers can participate. The reception is made within the Secondary school of Pons. This place allows to insure a well-balanced catering as well as a friendly and nice place of life. This infrastructure situated in the city center of Pons allows the instrumentalists to visit easily this medieval town.

Furthermore, the Festival is anchored between earth and sea, allowing to offer to the musicians varied tourist discoveries, going from Atlantic Coasts to the hillsides of the countries of Cognac and Pineau.
