1/ Grace: Princess of Monaco
The world’s romance with Grace Kelly, the Hollywood star who became the Princess of
Monaco, continues. In the summer of 2007 a fifteen room exhibition dedicated to her private and public life was on view at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco. CANAPE visits with the curator Frédéric Mitterrand and listens to the words of His Serene Highness Prince Albert as he speaks of his mother. Back in New York CANAPE sits down with Consul General Maguy Maccario-Doyle as she describes Grace … Princess of Monaco on view at Sotheby’s.
“Plasticine porters with looking glass eyes.” The Beatles recorded those memorable lyrics in 1967 for Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band. In 2004 a group of teenage French girls were inspired to name themselves for a phrase from a great era of popular music that passed before they were born. Less than two years later they had a contract with a major label. And in 2007 they came to New York. They didn’t play Shea Stadium but they rocked the Hammerstein Ballroom. Canape had to hear for itself.
3/ Stéphane Pompougnac : New "Hotel Costes" Cd
A place can be more than a place. Hotel Costes on the chic Right Bank of Paris has long been a luxurious hangout for celebrities and notables from sports, fashion, and entertainment. But in the past decade it’s also become something for the folks who can’t afford a kir royale at the bar. It’s become synonymous with CDs offering lounge music mixes. DJ Stephane Pompougnac, who is responsible for the series, began as a waiter at the hotel but now his dossier includes musician, producer, and composer. He vistis with CANAPE.
