This Weekend: Paris Jazz Festival and Vivaldi’s Four Seasons at La Sainte Chapelle

Vivaldi’s Four Seasons at La Sainte Chapelle – Wonderful music and a splendid atmosphere in Sainte Chapelle, one the most beautiful churches in Paris.

It looks like a rainy weekend upcoming for our arrival in Paris. Undaunted by the forecast, we are planning Saturday at beautiful Park Floral for the Paris Jazz Festival. We will picnic on the very same rolling hills where Napoleon Bonaparte trained his soldiers, while listening to some of Europe’s best jazz musicians (err… that’s me listening to jazz, not Napoleon’s soldiers.)

Sunday, we’re very much looking forward to Vivaldi’s Four Seasons being performed at La Sainte Chapelle. I much prefer Vivaldi’s Four Seasons to Alt-Vivaldi’s Climate Changed Two Seasons. Even without the violins and cellos, Sainte Chapelle will be exciting to behold. I’m told, this chapel has been the home of numerous Christian relics, including Christ’s crown of thorns, acquired by Saint Louis. Imagine that!

Speaking of Christian relics –  Bonjour to my Aunt Mary down in Dunedin Florida. I love you. Keep walking every day, and stop watching Fox News.

à bientôt., Mike.
