A Little Night Music

Last evening, under a cloudy sky, we joined others for a piano concert given by Guilhem Fabre.  The setting for the concert was the terrasse of a home in our village, Vers Pont du Gard.
People gathered for wine before Guilhem played Chopin, Liszt, Schubert and Schumann (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCB09TNXOVc&feature=related).  During the concert, the near full moon tried to join us, however, the clouds delayed its arrival.
Tall and slender, Guilhem filled the night with Musique Romantique.
 The chandelier added a bit of whimsy to the performance.
Following an hour of night music, the kitchen was bustling.  Each person at the concert had brought a favorite food to share at the buffet.
Fresh fruits and vegetable settled into many of this evening's dishes.
Our neighbors, Jean and John, joined us in the garden
while others gathered under the night sky enjoying the excellent foods and conversation.
A small village Vers Pont du Gard?  Yes, but with many exciting things happening.
