The Classique au Vert festival, which celebrates its 20th edition this year, hopes to be the ‘summer garden of classical music in Paris’. We’re not quite sure what that means, but we’re prepared to go down and see 😛

Each weekend, you can enjoy the amazing greenery of the Parc Floral and a free classical music concert at 4pm on their main stage!

The full programme can be consulted here (we’re especially curious about the concert on 18th August, where members of the public will vote for what they want to hear), and additional events are on offer too:

– each Sunday at 2pm there’s a singing workshop called “Si on chantait” helmed by singing coach Marianne Seleskovitch

– each Saturday before the concerts, there’s the “Si on découvrait” session at 2pm, when pianist and voice coach Thomas Tacquet gets together with musicologists, composers and professional young musicians to give a musical presentation on a different theme each week, based on the concert that follows

– and you can meet the artists after each concert at 5.30pm

A super relaxing idea for the summer weekends in Paris!
