Together with the Pau Pays de Béarn Orchestra (OPPB), the Palais Beaumont has developed a programme of original activities. Whatever the nature of your meeting (seminar, incentive event, conference, or other), a musical team building module will give the event an unprecedented dimension. Professional musicians from the OPPB will guide you, lending your gathering a rare intensity. An original reason for choosing the Palais Beaumont
The OPPB, Pau Pays de Béarn Orchestra
With a growing reputation, the Pau Pays de Béarn Orchestra (OPPB) is a major contributor to Aquitaine cultural heritage. It now occupies a new place on the French symphony orchestra scene. Since its creation, the Orchestra has been conducted by Fayçal Karoui, whose career also led him to conduct at the Opéra de Paris, La Scala in Milan and the Vienna State Opera, after being musical director of the New York City Ballet for six years. He is also regularly invited to conduct at prestigious festivals with the OPPB or other orchestras, for example La Roque d’Anthéron, La Folle Journée in Nantes and Tokyo, the Festival de Menton and the Festival d’Annecy.
