“Amélie” is a fanciful comedy about a young woman who discretely orchestrates the lives of the people around her, creating a world exclusively of her own making. Shot in over 80 Parisian locations, acclaimed director Jean-Pierre Jeunet (“Delicatessen”; “The City of Lost Children”) invokes his incomparable visionary style to capture the exquisite charm and mystery of modern-day Paris through the eyes of a beautiful ingenue.

Paonia’s own local chamber orchestra group, Northforkestra, will delight you with a musical preview of two familiar pieces from the film, “Amelie,” composed by Yann Tiersen.

Join us to experience the beautiful complexity of his music through the sounds of strings, (Cassandra Schenk and Rebecca Norris-Weyer on violin, Nick Rogers on cello, and Linda Hansen on bass), woodwinds, (Lena Roeder on flute, Natalie Haines and Jeremy Kester on clarinet), and percussion (Sandy Chetnik on piano and David Alderdice on drums and auxiliary percussion). Northforkestra has been ongoing for 6 years, and dedicates this performance to honor one of its founders, Philip Salembier.
