Wonderful evening in Salon-De-Provence

posted by Lenny Spangberg @ 17:15 PM

The pretty little Italian style theatre of Salon-de-Provence which hosted the Orchestre Regional de Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur and his conductor Philippe Bender last night, was over crowded.

Andantino had booked more than 90 seats, most of which were for customers of one of our member, the Credit du Nord.

After Betsy Jolas “Quatre psaumes de Schütz” and the concerto “L’empereur” of L. van Beethoven masterfully performed by Brigitte Engerer, our Maestro conducted the 5th Symphony of L. van Beethoven.

The public offered a vibrant standing ovation to all the artists!
