PLEASE NOTE: due to the current Covid-19 situation, our next concert scheduled for 14 June has had to be postponed until June 2021.
Vive la France: a sequel to Risingholme’s sold-out Viva L’Italia concert held in June 2019. The programme presents un buffet of French music: some meaty, some cheesy, all Gallic flavoured, and served under the freshly-baked baguette of our chef d’orchestre. Featuring several guest artists, music includes pieces from the Moulin Rouge, Paris Opera and Palace of Versailles, as well as the premiere of an orchestral work by Auckland composer Warwick Blair, which remixes un classique: Charles Aznavour’s “She”.
We are thrilled to announce that M. Olivier Lacoua, Honorary Consul for France, will be joining us for this wonderful concert. Members of the Citroën Car Club will also be on hand with some French automobile showpieces, while a French chef will be offering genuine baguettes and pastries for sale before the concert and during the interval. We look forward to welcoming you to an afternoon of French delights…!
