::La Folle Journee au Japon::

Another festival that I look forward to every year.
La Folle Journee au Japon is one of the biggest classical music festival in Tokyo.
The entire area of Tokyo International Forum is reserved for this,
and so many performers come here and play from all over the world.

My friends and I got tickets for the very last concert in the biggest concert hall.

They have many stands that serve alcohol and food.
We picked up some dinner before the concert.

I got red wine and tasty Indian Chicken Wrap :)

The last concert started at 8:45pm.
They played a piano concerto composed by Ravel 
,and some other pieces with a famous castanet player, Lucero Tena.
It was supposed to end around 9:30pm,
but Lucero kept on appearing on the stage and played couple of pieces as encores
, the stage ended around 10pm.
She was really frank and fun!

After the concert, we stopped by a mexican diner for a drink.
It was such a nice day spending quality time with my friends and beautiful music.

Thank you for reading.
