Susie leads the parade

Each year at the Baroque Festival there is a parade of musicians - professionals and amateurs. Music is provided by Matthias Maute and everyone brings something to play, whether pots and pans or actual instruments. Susie Napper is the incredible director of the festival. Each year she dreams up a creative theme with incredible programming to go with it. This year with the theme of apocalypse, concerts reflected both the disastrous possibilities and the playful ones (imagine the apocalyptic happening when the princess kissed the frog).

Parade Leader

This year the parade was led by this harlequin. Half way through we were met by two horses in costumes from Versailles. They would soon be performing in a horse ballet (but more on that later).

The Horses Meet Us

And here are a few more shots from the parade (I took time out of playing to snap these photos).
