Place des Vosges, Paris: 71 reviews and 154 photos
This is where I unexpectedly heard two soprano voices singing opera arias, as I have described in my Place des Vosges travelogue.
Up to the year 2006, at least six other VT members reported that they had seen and heard people playing classical music under the arches at Place des Vosges.
--tini58de has a photo of a fantastic Mozart concert given by a group of young people -- that was my very personal highlight!
--ptitetoile also has a photo of musicians playing classical music...the acoustic is wonderful!!!!
--jakiline has a photo of a string orchestra, the classique metropolitain orchestra, playing Vivaldi under the arches.
--Beausoleil has also mentioned hearing classical music played under the arcades at the Place des Vosges. (She and her husband were staying at Hotel des Vosges on rue de Birague. From their hotel room window they often heard classical music coming up from under the arcades. "It was wonderful.")
--At the same place, tiabunna came across a group of young musicians playing one of Bach?s Brandenburg concertos to an appreciative audience -- and doing an excellent job of it.
--sachara wrote in a comment: "And yes, I heard classical music under the arches of Places de Vosges as well."
Second, third and fourth photos: Singing under the arches.
Fifth photo: A year later, in June 2007, there was a new café under the arches at the corner where the singers and musicians used to perform. But by 2011 they had found a new place to perform, as shown in my Place des Vosges travelogue.
