The French Art and Film Festival is gonna be in town starting tomorrow. I'm planning to watch four of the shows from the festival:
Performance by French Indie Singer, Amelie at KLPac, 18 May 2010, 8.30 pm. Améllie is a promising eclectic French singer whose influences extend from electronic music to folk....espite being a solo artist, Améllie has created her own small orchestra. She accompanies her lyrics with exotic instruments: ukulele, balafon, little harp and guitar.
Trio Con Fuoco at the Dewan Filharmonik Petronas, 20 May 2010, 8.30 pm. The Trio con Fuoco [Sullimann Altmayer (violin), Gauthier Herrmann (cello) and Romain Descharmes (piano)] was born out of the meeting of three young artists sharing the same passion for chamber music, in 1998. They rapidly came to prominence in the musical landscape as chamber musicians of the new generation. They will perform:
Cesar Franck: Sonata for violin and piano
Gabriel Faure: Trio in D minor opus 120
Johannes Brahms: Trio n°1 in B major opus
MOURON, Hymnes L'amour, a tribute to French Love songs at Panggung Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur, 23 May 2010, 8.30 pm. Influenced by the likes of Edith Piaf and Jacques Brel, Mouron is known as the “Diva of Chanson”. Hymnes a l’Amour” will showcase the most beautiful and famous French love songs.
Mondovino, a documentary on the magical transformation of grapes into wine at NeroFico, Wisma Perintis, 25 May 2010, 8.00 pm.

It's busy period of the year with a thousand and one things to do within such a short period. In spite of this, Alhamdulillah, am still holding up quite well although I am running behind schedule on some of my work. Insya Allah, if I put some extra time into my work just for a few more weeks, I should be able to finish all on time. Funny how time works because there are times when I have just too much of it in my hands with nothing much to do. And then there's now. :) A lot going on in my life right now but I'm not complaining. Will just go with the flow.............
