The Music Academy

The Académie musicale de Villecroze was the brainchild of Anne Gruner Schlumberger. Passionate about music, she wanted to develop a sponsorship programme to encourage young artists to practice and create music. When she discovered the village of Villecroze in Provence, the project seemed an obvious choice.
