Every 2 years, the orchestra I play with - the Youth Orchestra of Bucks County (YOBC) does a tour overseas (usually to Europe). In 2012, we traveled to Spain and along the coast of France to Nice, and 4 years later, I was again in some...familiar? places.
We visited and played concerts in several towns and cities throughout France, starting in Chamonix and working our way through Arles, Avignon, and finally to Nice. The sights were, to say the least, incredible, as well as the venues.
By far my favorite place we toured was Chamonix-Mont Blanc. The pictures I took below do not and cannot truly depict the scale and massiveness of everything there - you really do have to experience it firsthand. Among the breathtaking venues we had was Villefranche-sur-Mer, a citadel overlooking the Mediterranean just outside Nice.
I’m not going to post all the pictures I took as I’m not really a photographer, but below are a few of my favorites.
