Festival d'Automne du Conservatoire de Toulon 2019

The Autumn Festival is the festival of teachers of the TPM Conservatory. For its 6th edition, he is participating in the exhibition "Picasso Mediterranean". On this occasion, a programme
the entire territory of the TPM Metropolis will highlight the links that exist between the artist, his work and the landscape.

Pablo Picasso played a decisive role in musical life at the beginning of the 20th century. His encounters with composers, his work as a set designer and costume designer for dance, his privileged links with popular arts and traditions, not to mention the collusion between his universe and that of jazz or song, are all links that will be mentioned in the various programmes of the Autumn Festival.

Eight free concerts and shows will be held from November 15 to December 7 in Valletta-du-Var, Le Pradet, Ollioules, Saint Mandrier-sur-Mer, La Garde, La Seyne-sur-Mer and Hyères.
