Tourettes Sur Loop, beautiful perched village in Provence where Florida Flute Orchestra performed, 2005
While in France, the Florida Flute Orchestra visited the Conservatoire National de Region in Dijon. There they performed with one of France’s top flute ensembles, Flutes Ad Libitum, directed by Martine Charlot. The Florida Flute Orchestra hosted Flutes Ad Libitum during their Florida concert tour in April of 2006. One of the highlights of the French tour was in the Provencal perched village of Tourettes-sur-Loup. The great grandson of famous French composer Jules Massenet, Frederic Failliot-Massenet, was in the audience. We happened to be playing some ballet dances from Massesnet’s opera Manon. He came up after our performance and thanked us for playing so beautifully the music of his great grandfather.
