Stephanie Elkins & Peter van de Graaff

A classical music, art, history and culturally enriching journey

You are cordially invited to join me, Stephanie Elkins, and my esteemed classical colleague, Peter van de Graaff, and lovers of good food, history, art and classical music on an exclusive public radio adventure to Paris and Normandy. We have chartered the MS Amadeus Diamond exclusively for this Wisconsin Public Radio classical music trip. We’ll attend several glorious classical concerts and savor Normandy’s regional cuisine and cider. We’ll also explore picturesque villages, the historic D-Day beaches and we’ll take a stroll through the fall colors of Monet’s garden at Giverny. Space is limited, don’t miss this luxury river cruise with me and your fellow Public Radio fans!

– À bientôt!

Stephanie Elkins
