un festival d’exception dédié au piano: 

une expérience musicale unique

au coeur des Corbières

vingt concerts gratuits, des pianistes de qualité,

dans un des plus beaux villages de France




Please help us ensure that the 2018 Festival builds on the success of the last five years.  



Your contribution will help ensure that the En Blanc et Noir festival will continue to be free as we passionately believe that it should be accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of their means, education, background or musical knowledge.  Thanks to the generosity of individual donors and concert goers we have been able to meet our costs to date.  Your donation will help us stage our 5th festival and ensure that it will continue to grow as a unique cultural event in the small but dynamic village of Lagrasse.



We welcome any amount, however small, and all donors feature in the programme as a heartfelt “thank you” (unless, of course, you prefer anonymity).



For €25 you will be welcomed as a member of the EN BLANC ET NOIR Association. 


Donation of €1,000 will entitle you to a personal recital by one of EBEN’s artists.


Donations of €500 bring the same benefits, but you will also receive

        an invitation to the festival party with the musicians

        a free programme

        an interval drink

        a front row seat

        the opportunity to request a piece from one of the pianists

        a festival t-shirt

        your choice of a signed poster or programme.


You can also say how your donation will be used.  For example:

    •    € 1,000 covers the fee of an international soloist/mentor; or a contribution towards the rental fee of the concert grand piano;

    •    € 500 provides the fee for a young, emerging pianist;

    •    € 300 helps us tune the piano;

    •    € 200 covers the travel costs for a pianist;

    •    € 100 helps towards technical support: build the stage, rent and hang lights, etc;

    •    € 50 helps produce an informative and attractive souvenir programme


It’s easy to donate; just click on the DONATE button to give now.
