Vanessie restau­rant and piano lounge (434 W. San Fran­cisco St., 982-9966) is un­der new own­er­ship and may get a per­for­mance-ros­ter facelift soon, but there’s one tra­di­tion of the decades-old Santa Fe diningand-nightlife in­sti­tu­tion that isn’t go­ing any­where — at least for now. At 4 p.m. Sun­day, April 10, 17, and 24, Charles

Tichenor and Ron “Dadou” Ro­manovsky present April in Paris, their an­nual ode to La Ville-Lu­mière. The pop­u­lar fête also in­cludes per­for­mances by per­cus­sion­ist Phil Scol­lard and ac­tress Cindy Coul­ter. Singing in French and English, Ro­manovsky and Tichenor bring the mu­sic of Edith Piaf, Charles Trenet, Cole Porter, and oth­ers to the stage. Tick­ets are $15 at the door, gen­eral ad­mis­sion, cash and checks only. Born in Scot­land and raised on Mi­norca, David Rus­sell is among the cur­rent roy­als of the clas­si­cal gui­tar. In 2009, he was awarded hon­orary mem­ber­ship in “Ami­gos de la Gui­tarra,” the most ven­er­a­ble gui­tar so­ci­ety in Spain. The Santa Fe Con­cert As­so­ci­a­tion presents him in a pro­gram that in­cludes ar­range­ments by Han­del, Bach, and Al­béniz as well as mu­sic by the 19th-cen­tury vir­tu­oso Gi­ulio Re­gondi. Tick­ets ($30) for this con­cert at 7:30 p.m. on Fri­day,

April 8, in the Great Hall at St. John’s Col­lege (1160 Camino de Cruz Blanca), are avail­able from Tick­ets Santa Fe at the Len­sic (988-1234, www.tick­etssantafe.org) and at the door. Orig­i­nal jazz com­po­si­tions are on the pro­gram for J.Q. Whit­comb and his quin­tet Five Be­low, play­ing First Pres­by­te­rian Church (208 Grant Ave.) at 4 p.m. Satur­day, April 9. Whit­comb, a Santa Fe na­tive, re­cently re­turned from eight years in Shang­hai, where he was part of the ac­tive jazz scene. For the April 9 gig, he has gath­ered John Ran­gel, or­gan; Joel Fad­ness, drums; Kanoa Kaluhiwa, tenor sax; and John

Maes­tas, gui­tar. Tick­ets are $12 in ad­vance, $15 at door. Call 920-5490. Mezzo-so­prano Carin Gil­fry, ap­plauded in Santa Fe Opera’s re­cent pro­duc­tion of Life Is a Dream, main­tains a spe­cial in­ter­est in art songs by women com­posers from the 19th cen­tury to the present. In her con­cert at 4 p.m. Sun­day, April 10, in the Great Hall at St. John’s Col­lege (1160 Camino de Cruz Blanca), she of­fers works by nine such com­posers, in­clud­ing Clara Schu­mann and Alma Mahler.
