June 23 – September 17, 2017
The Soirees Estivales/Summer Nights concert series is an all-summer-long string of free high-quality concerts in all the little villages both close and far from Nice.
Every year the ‘Summer Nights’ series fills the Riviera with free music and gives a great excuse to visit the wonderful little villages up and down the coast and inland, places that we might otherwise overlook.
The program is eclectic with something for every taste, the quality is good, and the settings range from quaint and quirky to magnificent. It’s the perfect excuse to get out of the city… Biot, Grasse, Breil-sur-Roya, Beulieu, Eze, St Jennet, Saint-Paul-de-Vence… every village in and around the Cote has something. A free concert of good quality in a charming village… what’s not to love?
To check out the list of upcoming concerts click here (and then click on ‘programme’); the concerts go from June through mid-September and you can search by town, date, or type of music. There’s something for everyone, from jazz, classical, opera, dance, rock, blues, folk, world, ethnic… and many that defy categorizing: but with a high level of quality guaranteed, you can afford to take a chance!
