Tickets for concert at Saint Chapelle

I have read several threads on this subject but need some help...

Looking for the concert "The four seasons by Vivaldi" on October 22, 2012 at Saint Chapelle.

One reader suggested purchasing the tickets here http://www.ampconcerts.com. When I navigate to this site I only see the 10/23 concert for Vivaldi at Madeleine. It doesn't show the 10/22 at Saint Chapelle.

When I go to this site it shows a Vivaldi concert for the one I want (10/22 @ Saint Chapelle).

http://www.classictic.com/en/sainte_.../16075/128568/

Not sure why the one on ampconcerts doesn't show up? Anyone? I was told that purchasing through ampconcerts was less expensive but I just don't know.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

FYI it isn't Saint Chapelle, it is Sainte Chapelle.

Ampconcerts is a music organization that puts on many concerts there but they aren't the only ones allowed to play there, some other groups do occasionally. I would guess that is the reason. It is just a venue that is rented out to various organizations who do concerts there. Ampconcerts has a pretty good regular gig there, but other groups also play there at times.

I checked FNAC and there are maybe 3 different groups who do that particular piece there, but I don't see any concert on 10/22 for that date on FNAC. They do have that performer playing there in October, but a different date. But FNAC may have missed that one in their listings, who knows. you can also check www.ticketnet.fr which is the agency that operates inside Virgin records stores.

it is pronounced differently, also, and if you search you should have it correctly, I thought

It is probably one of these groups that is playing that piece there
http://solistesfrancais.com/
http://www.archetspf.asso.fr/

they don't list it and don't seem to sell their own tickets anyway, so I think you'll have to get it at the one you named or when you get in Paris

I went to the same concert in March and bought tickets from classictic.com. Worked out perfectly. Ours was indeed Les Solistes Francais. We really enjoyed it - hope you do as well!
