Two Hundred Years of Music
Marcilhac-sur-Cele. Organized by local musician, Michel Pons, it was entitled Anniversaires and celebrated two hundred years of lovely string music. 1813 was represented by two pieces from Guiseppe Verdi (1813-1901) and one by Richard Wagner (1813-1883) Simple Symphony by Benjamin Britten (1913-1976) closed the program. Mezzo-soprano, Sylvie Pons sang with several of the movements filling the church with her glorious voice. The church was packed attesting once again to the French people's love of music.
