6/26 Here's the June newsletter
6/26 Almost despite itself, three movements of Wedge Miniatures will be performed at the Espace Francois Mauriac in Sevran on Friday June 29 at 8:45pm (20h45). [Note the change from 8pm!] The performers will be Samuel Andreyev (oboe) and Hyun Hwa Cho (piano). Here's how to get there:
- Take the RER B towards Roissy-CDG, but not the train that goes straight from Paris to the airport. Sit towards the back of the train
- When you get out of the train, go to the back exit. Keep going straight (south). You'll be walking along ave. Andre Toutain, which becomes ave. de Lattre de Tassigny.
- At the end of ave. de Lattre de Tassigny, you'll come to a T intersection with ave. du General Leclerc. On your right will be a square with a quote from de Gaulle. Cross ave. du General Leclerc, and the Espace Francois Mauriac will be the low building right in front of you.
- The Espace Francois Mauriac claims that it is located at 51, ave du General Leclerc. However, if you put that into any online map provider, you get the wrong place. You can't trust everything you see on the web...
- Here's a map of how to get from the RER station to the Espace Francois Mauriac.
Here's the May newsletter
