Preparations and Répétitions

There’s lots going on in June with shared meals to finish off the year’s courses and next week’s midsummer celebrations. We finish our first year of line dancing with a performance during Wednesday evening’s Fête de la Musique in Cluny. Hopefully with all the rehearsing we are doing nobody will put a foot wrong.

Before that comes another midsummer event, the Feux de la St Jean. The men were out yesterday building the bonfire.  On Friday morning they will be building the stage for the band, and Saturday will involve putting up the barnum and catering.

Here are some photos Chris took yesterday -

A bit of mechanical help this year

This photo reminds us if “Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima”

There’s another big event the following weekend of 23rd, 24th & 25th June. The Cant’Azé choir present their end of year concert, “La Magie des Chansons”. It will be the last time to hear the choir under the direction of David Aubrec. It’s at Azé church and everyone is invited for aperos afterwards.

Hopefully the fine weather will continue for all the outdoor events and we don’t get too many thunderstorms. Perhaps we will be dancing in the rain!
