Festival de Musique - the Masterclass

Menton's famous Festival de Musique - this is the 63rd edition - is currently taking place at the parvis in front of the Basilica in the Old Town.

Part of this festival is a Masterclass for harpists given by virtuuso Marielle Nordmann. These are taking place in the villa of the Serre de la Madone , probably Menton's most famous garden. The culmination of these masterclasses will be a performance by the students at the Palais de l'Europe.

Tomorrow, we meet Manon, one of the young harpists.

  1. There's just something about a harp ...
    Not like any other instrument.

    I'm so happy to see that the word parvis is actually used. I knew it only for the Holy Sepulchre.

  2. I love the photos, the composition is so professional!

  3. these are as lovely as the music the harp makes.

  4. Love the top and bottom shots!!! The harp and hands is wonderful!!!

  5. Last april I had the chance to visit the garden " Serre de la Madone ". What a peaceful location for a Masterclasses !
