Founded in 2008 by the British conductor Martin Yates, in collaboration with the Comité d’Animation d’Aujols, now known as Aujols Culture et Loisirs, Les Heures Musicales d’Aujols has rapidly become one of the most enjoyable chamber music festivals of its type.

Its reputation for presenting international artists of the highest calibre, in the stunning setting of the Eglise St. Jean-Baptiste, has ensured its success.
