Stacey Kent Concert in Uzes

Uzés Summer Music

There are a few musical events in my life that the Barefoot Blogger will always remember. The concert with Stacey Kent in the Cour du Duché is high on the list.

A magnificent azure sky against the yellow haze of the Château du Duché and a soft summer breeze made the evening in Uzès seem heaven-sent. Add to that the clear, innocent voice of Stacey Kent, singing my favorite type of music — Antonio Carlos Jobim, Stan Getz, aka Diana Krall and Melody Gardot. It was an experience that made me pinch myself several times during the performance to make certain I was not dreaming.


Although I live only a few feet away from the Château du Duché,  I had never been inside the courtyard. Guests are invited for special events and occasional tours.

There was even a glimpse of the Duke and the family who were entertained from the balcony.

Isn’t it fun to see royalty up close and personal?


Stacey Kent and her ensemble were casual and at ease with the mostly French audience. Stacey Kent is an American and conversed easily in French, telling the crowd about the music and her fellow musicians — especially her husband, the lead brass and wind artist.
