10e concert estival de Julie Scolnik au vieux village d'Eygalieres 2016

<p> Ever since my husband Michael and I began spending our summers in Eygalières, I have presented a free concert for the village as a way of expressing my gratitude for the warm welcome we have felt here. (I am a professional flutist based in Boston, in the United States, and the artistic director of a popular concert series: <a href="http://www.MistralMusic.org" target="_blank">http://www.MistralMusic.org.)</a></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Img_2425-1462657265" height="240" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/313232/IMG_2425-1462657265.jpg" width="211"> <img alt="269346_10151054343542952_1162917068_n-1462713499" height="263" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/313378/269346_10151054343542952_1162917068_n-1462713499.jpg" width="203"></p> <p>  </p> <p> For 10 years this concert has brought together people from all walks of life. I have found it incredibly moving to see everyone come together to fill the town church, or last year, outside, at Place des Pago-Tard, where listeners perched on stone walls and children danced to the music. Many people count on this concert and love that it is accessible to everyone.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Thumb_unknown_1024-1462713121" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/313376/thumb_Unknown_1024-1462713121.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> This year, in order to celebrate my 10th concert here, I invited back the wonderful pianist Aurélien Pontier, as well as Trio Jacob (<a href="http://www.triojacob.com" target="_blank">http://www.triojacob.com</a>) an amazing string trio based in Paris. With this combination we can play an ambitious and varied program worthy of a ten-year celebration! We will be playing a program of Mozart, Liszt, Brahms, and Dvoräk.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="11709763_1107458132602508_4757561529485414406_n-1_1024-1462713080" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/313373/11709763_1107458132602508_4757561529485414406_n-1_1024-1462713080.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> As last year, the concert takes place at Place des Pago-Tard, an open space on the way up the hill at the center of Eygalières. Surrounding the place are medieval stone houses and trees filled with cigales, whose chirping dies out with the setting sun just as the concert begins. There is space for about 100 seated on chairs in the place, and many more on the surrounding walls. Some bring their own chairs. It is truly an idyllic spot to experience the intimacy of chamber music.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Thank you for anything you can contribute to this concert for the village.</p>

Allocation of funds

<p> This free concert creates a moving and exciting musical experience open to everyone in the village, which reminds us all of the emotional power of live musical performance.</p> <p>  </p> <p> We have received wonderful support from the OMC (l'Office Municipal de la Culture), who provide the chairs and stage and a reception.</p> <p>  </p> <p> I always play for no fee, but my colleagues, professional artists of the highest caliber, deserve to be compensated, and there is the additional cost of the piano to rent. These expenses, plus a small amount for advertising, make up the budget.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Piano rental and move: 1000</p> <p> 4 artists (excluding Julie): 3000</p> <p> Publicity and programs: 250</p> <p>  </p> <p> If we exceed the project budget, the funds will be set aside to produce an even better concert next year!</p> <p>  </p>
