The Exotic Garden will host a free outdoor concert, Rockbox, on St Patrick's Day. The event is being organised by the Monaco Town Council in collaboration with Monaco’s Harley Davidson Club, and is part of the Toulouse group's French tour, which began last month to mark its 10th anniversary.
The band opened for Deep Purple on a tour but also performed on European stages and street concerts. Talent and originality characterise this “school blazer and cap wearing” band, whose lead Richard Rethore sings through a megaphone.
Rockbox offers full covers tunes, and at the base of their repertoire: Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, The Who, David Bowie and other icons of the international rock scene.
Rockbox should light up the public this March 17 at the Jardin Exotique, “an idyllic setting for an exceptional concert,” the Town Hall says.
Free admission on Saturday, March 17, at pm.

As every year, the Pavillon Bosio Visual Arts School, also known as ESAP, will open its doors to the public for its traditional Open Day on Saturday, March 24, from 10 am to 6 pm.
Drawings, installations, video, volume, and collective and scenographic projects will be presented. Teachers and students will welcome and inform future candidates about the courses offered, which include a National Diploma of Visual Arts (equivalent to a 3-year University degree) and Masters of Visual Arts (a 5-year University degree equivalent).
Two sessions have been opened for entrance examinations and equivalence commissions. The first on Thursday, April 12, from 9 am, and Friday, April 13 (submission of applications before March 29). The second on Tuesday, September 4, from 9 am, and Wednesday, September 5, by appointment (submission of candidatures before August 21).
To register, candidates must be under the age of 24 on the date of the contest; have a baccalaureate (students in Terminale are admitted subject to graduation); or have attended or finished university studies in France or abroad.
Exceptional derogations may be granted to candidates with a professional background or studies in line with artistic studies (for non-graduates, the level of general education must be equivalent to a baccalaureate).
Non-francophone students must pass a written test in French.
The academic year will begin on Monday, September 24. The registration fee for the entrance examination is €30.
The school, which is located on the Rock, also takes an active part in promoting contemporary works and Monaco’s cultural vocation.
In an effort to raise public awareness about art, ESAP offers technical workshops “to those who would like to initiate themselves to art or increase the spontaneity of their artistic expression”.
Courses are taught by qualified art teachers and the programs offered follow specific pedagogical project guidelines.
