Memorial service in Nice Monday in aid of Bastille Day victims

By Staff Writer - July 31, 2016

Nice_attack_memorialSoloists from the Monte-Carlo Opera will perform at the special memorial service in the Sainte-Reparate Cathedral in the heart of Nice Old Town on Monday. Proceeds from donations at the concert will be passed to associations supporting the victims of the Bastille Day atrocity in Nice.

The soprano Elizabeth Vidal, teacher of singing at Nice Conservatory, and whose father is Spanish and mother British, will sing accompanied by organist Stephane Eliot, while the Monte-Carlo soloists will stick by their original programme of music from well-known movies, including The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Back to the Future, Indiana Jones and Star Wars.

The florists of Cours Saleya will hand out flowers at the entrance to the Cathedral for those who attend to lay their own personal floral tributes to the 84 people who lost their lives in Nice on July 14, and in memory of Father Jacques Hamel, assassinated in his church in Normandy on Tuesday last week. The service will start at 8:30 pm amid heightened security.
