Hit a musical high
This week, music buffs can make the most of their evenings with two inspiring performances and an engaging guitar workshop
Cine concert with a French trio
Back in the time, when engineers had still not developed a way to sync film and video on the same reel, theatres would often hire orchestras to play the music live, while a film/video screening was in progress. The Le P’tit Cine Concert 2 by French trio, Philharmonique de la Roquette (The Philharmonic The Rocket) promises to offer a similar vibe.
Born in Arles in the district of the Rocket, the company of three musicians — Laurent Bernard (keyboard), Lilian Bencini (bass) and Julien Kamoun (drums and musical saw) have been playing live for the last 15 years. This workshop will see them playing live for 11 short films including Nicolas and Guillemette, Tim Tom, Bave Circus, Goodbye Canine, Oktapodi, Miam and La Migration Bigoudenn, among others.
On: Today, 8.30 pm to 9.30 pm
At: blueFROG, Mathuradas Mill Compound, Senapati Bapat Marg, Lower Parel.
Cost: Rs 350 to Rs 1,000
