About the Festival

The Fontainebleau Schools for Music and Fine Arts aim to raise awareness of French culture, particularly music and architecture, among foreign students. Every summer since 1921, the Fontainebleau Schools have been based at the Château de Fontainebleau. With the latter’s initiative, they created in 2018, the festival Musique au Château, which “fully integrates the artistic programming of the Fontainebleau Schools into the life of the castle, by highlighting their original history, the relevance of their teaching, the talent of their students, while allowing the public to discover the prestigious setting of Fontainebleau”. Indeed, through music, the festival offers a new approach to the site. This festival is organized in partnership with the Chateau de Fontainebleau, the city of Fontainebleau and the Fontainebleau Associations. More information and complete program
