Dear Members and friends,
Our American Independence celebration takes us to the Castel Plage (www.castelplage.com) in Nice for a musical evening and dinner. Castel Plage is the beach-restaurant furthest east on the Quai des Etats-Unis, nestled under the Parc du Chateau on the Promenade des Anglais. Castel Plage is one of the oldest establisments on the Baie des Anges.
While enjoying a three course dinner, we will be entertained by French-American soprano, Amy Christianna Blake, who has been noted for her «beautiful singing» and her «strong energy and stage presence» by The New York Times. Her singing of opera and concert repertory have established her as one of the most promising young artists on stage today. Amy is a West-Texas native and lives now on the Côte d’Azur.
(For more information about Amy please visit http.www.amyblakesoprano.com).
The Broadway stage has given us the great ”standards”, those immortal songs by masters like Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers and of course George Gershwin. The artists who have interpreted and revisited these songs have touched us all.
Amy Blake and the “Cream of the Crop” quartet of musicians who play at her side combine talent and authenticity and carry us into that chic and svelte ambiance of the Great White Way – Broadway – where sustained rhythms and sensual melodies reign.
For this evening exclusively, the team “Broadway Classics” welcomes dancers from the Nice Jazz Off Dance Academy – for a bit of time travel with Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Gene Kelly….
This is a superb price for both the show and dinner and so will be a great 4th July outing.
