The festival committee invites musicians from its international sister cities to attend the week-long festival. Grenoble is one of Phoenix’s nine sister cities.
The three teens will attend several music workshops during the week, staying in a local youth hostel along with the other international musicians. The festival ends with a concert at the local St. Andre Square.

On February 8, the Grenoble committee held a membership reception at Sophie's restaurant in Phoenix. Approximately 25 people attended. The heavy hors d'oeuvres were superb and the wine was flavorful and terrific. The goal of such receptions is to develop camraderie and membership within the general community so as to further develop membership in Phoenix Sister Cities and the Grenoble sister city committee.
The committee plans other such events in the coming year and hopes that members of all the sister cities' committees join us for these delightful culinary and cultural events.
