Musical creation by women

For the sixth consecutive year, women are honoured in and around the city through plays and shows of all kinds.

There have been many obstacles that, throughout time, have prevented or attempted to dissuade women to create art. The Presences Feminines festival is dedicated to composers, performers, muses, and patrons who, throughout the centuries, have rebelled against convention. Claire Bodin, a harpsichordist from Orne, and a professor at the Toulon Conservatory, launched this classical music festival in 2011. Since then, she has brought it to various venues in Toulon, as well as Pradet, Valletta and St. Mandrier, with concerts (for a fee) and conferences (free). This is the opportunity to make surprising , moving and always exciting discoveries.
