The Issigeac International Music Academy (IIMA) offers the commune of Issigeac and indeed the whole of the Southern Perigord a wonderful opportunity to invite some of the world’s leading classical musicians and music teachers to our community.

Make a date with the Tippett Quartet at Issigeac International Music Academy (IIMA) 2019!

We are delighted to announce that for our 2019 season we will be partnered by the world-famous Tippett String Quartet who will join with international violinist Ishani Bhoola and accompanist Jennifer Carter in providing a week of world-class instruction.

This is your chance to join like-minded enthusiasts for one-on-one mentoring with the world-renowned Tippett String Quartet during a week-long break in France’s idyllic Dordogne.

To top it all you can experience the thrill of being a professional musician by playing with them in a public concert at the end of your stay.

The IIMA has teamed up with the Tippett to provide a complete package that includes private accommodation in beautiful French homes, dining in fine restaurants specialising in the famous gastronomy of the Perigord region and a week in the company of quartet members.

You will be able to get to know some of the world’s greatest string players in an informal setting, take part in individual and group tuition including chamber orchestra participation and rehearsing for a live concert, as well as enjoy wine-tasting trips to local vineyards and spectacular castles and bastide villages.

The Academy is set in the exceptional medieval village of Issigeac, just 20 minutes south of the town of Bergerac and budget airline links to the UK.

With its renaissance Bishop’s Palace, 12th Century stone ramparts and beautifully preserved medieval houses, Issigeac is a rare gem within the area of the Bergerac appellation vineyards.

During the week the Tippet Quartet will be playing four public concerts in Issigeac’s municipal centre. On the final night the ensemble will stage a free concert open to the public with the participation of IIMA guests wishing to take part.

Wonderful Company  – Spectacular Music – Fantastic Foie Gras – Succulent Monbazillac Wines – be ready for a heady mix!

Who it’s for

Those wishing to take part should have attained Grade 5 or above in their respective instrument.


About Issigeac

Issigeac is an historic commune with around 400 permanent residents that dates back to Roman times, making it among the oldest continually occupied sites in the Perigord.

Fortified in medieval times and taking the circular shape it does today, the village was under English rule during the 100 years war and afterwards owned by the Bishop of Sarlat, who made it his summer residence.

The splendid Bishop’s palace and Church of St Felicien – principal Academy venues – along with the plethora of half-timbered houses that make up the body of the village, date from this time.

After several centuries as an important if small ecclesiastical community, Issigeac is now thriving and developing into one of the gems of Southern Perigord.

It can thank its period in the doldrums for the fact that has survived into the 21st century very little changed in either structure or character from how it was in medieval times.

Its Sunday market – which has been held continually since the 13th Century – is one of the wonders of the region attracting French and overseas visitors from far and wide.

While many new enterprises have taken root here, including artists studios, antique shops and artisans workshops the village is still a traditional French one, with a full range of small shops providing good and services for everyday life.

With four main restaurants, four cafés and a bustling bar Issigeac is also probably the best-catered village for gastronomy in the area.

Travelling to Issigeac

Issigeac is just 15 minutes from Bergerac airport with daily flights to the UK, other European destinations and Paris. It sits on the banks of the small river, the Banège, in the southern sector of Bergerac’s world famous vineyards; all set in the wonderful scenery which French writer Stendhal described as the ‘Tuscany of France.’
