Belcanto Incantato Concert Venue in France: Chateau Vaux le Vicomte on Saturday, July 5 at noon

Just over an hour drive southeast of Paris you will find the stunning Chateau Vaux le Vicomte. With it's beautifully well kept gardens and fountains and statues placed throughout the grounds, you won't question why there have been movies and famous photo shoots taken here using the grand Chateau as it's background. 

The centerpiece of it's grounds and better known as the head turning optical illusion would be considered the large reflecting pools that are bordered by grottos and statues. A man was employed to work out the details in his design for this 'hidden distortion' in order to establish a different perspective for the people. The reflecting pools are narrower at the closest point to the viewer, (which would be from when you are standing at the rear of the chateau and looking out) than at their farthest point. This was deliberately done to make them appear closer to you. Once you are walking through the gardens you will then truly realize how large the premises are. 

Belcanto under the direction of Mr. Bruce Koliha will present a concert in the Grand Hall on Saturday, July 5, 2014 at noon. The 100+ singers have been cordially invited by the Chateau team and together with their families and friends will have a chance to also explore and enjoy this stunning place.
