Quickly off to our second MAC concert with Brooks and a brilliant young violinist (23), Benjamin Baker … born in New Zealand … his first concert at 12 for the Mozart Festival before 1,000 … now continues international performances.

The program this afternoon included solos by both artists plus duets. Works included were by Liszt, Paganini, Elgar, Massenet, and Kriesler. This was a show to remember.
Finally, no visit to Paris would be complete without seeing a cabaret performance … the Paradis Latin cabaret provided the wine, champagne, dinner, comedy, acrobatics, and dancing girls (CanCan) … sorry, photos not allowed !!!
Near midnight we found our way back to our hotel … exhausted and feeling the effects of a great day.
