A JAUNT TO NANTES!

While duo parnas was enjoying their first trip “across the pond” and trying out their French and German, they had a special appointment in Nantes to meet and play for John Axelrod, Music Director of l’Orchestre National des Pays de la Loire (ONPL). After arriving in Paris Madalyn and Cicely were able to borrow fine instruments for this audition thanks to great violinist and friend, Renaud Capuçon! After a few days to practice and tour the beautiful city of Paris, they traveled to Nantes to attend a performance of the ONPL with Axelrod conducting and to audition the following day for an opportunity to perform a double concerto with the biggest orchestra in France. With 11,000 subscribers, the ONPL is #1, having the largest audience of any orchestra in the entire country. And… yes! They will be on the subscription series program with this great orchestra in March 2013!
