Founded and led by the internationally-acclaimed Zodiac Trio, the Zodiac Music Academy & Festival invites students and young professionals to spend twelve days of intense musical training and performing in one of the most stunningly beautiful corners of the world: the South of France, Côte d'Azur. 


Tucked away in the heights of the French Alps, the Festival makes its home in a historic mountain town of Valdeblore, and boasts an internationally-renowned faculty, acclaimed guest artists and ample performing opportunities throughout the region.  


With a special emphasis reserved for chamber music, this highly personal course offers young musicians the opportunity to explore the French school of music-making via masterclasses with renowned French guest artists, perform for European audiences and be inspired by an international faculty, all in an informal setting. 

"No other music festival has given me the opportunity to take chances and explore my musicality like the Zodiac Festival. With such an open minded and accessible faculty, it's easy to learn and grow as a musician in a way that continues throughout the rest of the year."
