Very HIP

It's always nice to come back to the Abbaye in Saintes. Like coming home. Seeing the tower walking from the  train station just makes me smile. I've been coming here for 3 years now, first time limping in the rain with a broken toe...There is something spooky about being only the 4 of us in the huge abbey. Especially sneaking into the pitch black church..
Now I know I will be coming back for an other few years! The HIP4tet got a residency here and a set of beautiful instruments from Henessy! They even have dragons painted inside of them! It's definitely a sign :)
As all musicians, we prefer playing than listening to official speeches and giving interviews or being filmed...but I guess we had to go through this. The cognac helped a bit..
Now we just have to plan the program for the next 3 years! Very very exciting!
