MUSIC IS A MORAL LAW,
IT GIVES SOUL TO THE UNIVERSE
WINGS TO THE MIND.
FLIGHT TO THE IMAGINATION
A CHARM TO SADNESS
GAIETY AND LIFE TO EVERYTHING.
IT IS THE ESSENCE
OF ORDER AND LENDS TO ALL
THAT IS GOOD,JUST, AND BEAUTIFUL.
PLATO

There seems to be an error with the player !

I have been reflecting on the proposed programme for La Chorale Symphonie.  In the meantime , a distraction has arisen....a pleasant one!!

I had contact with Orchestre D'Auvergne who would be interested to play the Viola Concerto ' Le Chant de Venus ' at Vence...!!

This afternoon I was with the man responsible for culture here  to discuss this proposed concert. ...Money as usual is the main question but the concerto does not require large forces , so I am hopeful of a performance here in 2016.

To return to the choral project....it became clear that my original hopes were unrealistic . Poulenc's Gloria is a beautiful work but needs a large orchestra which would not fit into the available space in the local cathedral.......but then again, if it was decided to hold the concert in the open air on the ' Place de Grand Jardin'' that would be no problem!!

. .  So.... as soon as this recent proposal regarding the Concerto has been settled, I can tackle the venue question and make a final decision on a programme... I will keep you updated.
