Jazz en Touraine (13-23 September 2018)
This festival invites often internationally-renowned jazz musicians to Montlouis-sur-Loire for 10 days. Richard Galliano, Didier Lockwood, Gregory Porter, Omar Sosa and Thomas Dutronc are just a few of the big names to have performed live on the stage of Espace Ligéria!

Les Musicales du Cadre Noir (19 October 2018)
The harmony between academic horse riding and classical music is celebrated in Saumur, with a special gala performed by the Cadre Noir riders and the orchestral ensemble of Paris, directed by Christian Ciuca. It’s an occasion to discover the prestigious Cadre Noir with its École Nationale d’Équitation (National Riding School), where you can learn the French savoir-faire of beautifully choreographed horsemanship.
