« Cordes en ballade » Festival

With today 20 years of presence and actions on the territory of Ardèche, the « Cordes en ballade » festival is now recognized as one of the major events of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, both in terms of musical requirements and true accessibility. Since 1999, the Debussy Quartet, whose reputation is well established throughout the world, has not stopped coming to settle in Ardèche every summer, not to afford the luxury of a holiday well-deserved after seasons in France and abroad, but to offer to this territory, which he had fallen literally in love with, a unique musical event, unifying and friendly : thus were born the « Cordes en ballade » festival.
