    Default Bonjour from a Frenchie in NYC

    Hi everyone!

    I am an amateur pianist and music lover from France and living in the US.
    I have never thought of looking into the classical community online before but with the confinement I've been feeling a need to read and communicate on what is one of my favorite topics. As someone in my mid-20s deeply passionate about classical music, I feel like most social media that I see on a daily basis does not necessarily cater to that therefore here I am!

    I am a classically trained pianist, usually playing for my own enjoyment on a daily basis. I sang opera as a teen and now I'm an avid Met Opera fan - I try to see a couple productions every year, but somehow never as many as I would like...

    Though I absolutely love most of the classical composers, I thoroughly enjoy discovering new composers and performers and I also have a passion for movie soundtracks. I used to think that it was hard to find new symphonic/chamber/vocal pieces that I would like so I am thankful to have finally realized that this is what this forum is for!

    I actually recently started a blog which includes music articles and interviews of classical performers as well. I just really enjoy learning and sharing about music in general.

    Looking forward to reading and exchanging with people on this forum!

    Isn't it boring
    to dip your puffy eyes,
    every day, into a jelly of clouds?'

    Bienvenue! Enjoy the forum, it's mostly harmless.
    I treat my music like I treat my pets. It’s something to own, care about and curate with attention to detail. From a blog by hjr.
