French Connection


limousinDuring the summer, a Camerata group flew from Southampton to perform 4 concerts in Limousin, France and local press coverage of the performances continues! It was a fantastic trip, organised by our very own Concert Sectretary, Pierre, whose efforts in the months leading up to the tour were rewarded by some memorable performances. We were very warmly received by the audiences, who now have a number of CDs to remember us bTour Poster for Limousin 2014y!


The group managed to pack in a fair amount of sightseeing also in between concerts, using an ‘Italian Job’ / ‘Wacky Races’ style of travel, finding their way along French country roads in a variety of vehicles to various destinations, including a trip to the striking Chateau de Val.

Muriel and Gilles, our hosts at the Meymacois Hotel were also very generous and pulled out all the stops to prepare the group an evening meal once they’d lost power following a thunderstorm! We were really grateful to have received wonderful hospitality from our hosts and look forward to our next visit. You can see more pictures from the tour on our Facebook pages.
