Maybe it was the first time you tasted a delicious French roll, or saw the Eiffel Tower. Maybe it was an exposure to music, culture, or fashion. Maybe it was in your early ventures as a reader ("In an old house in Paris that was covered in vines, lived twelve little girls in two straight lines"), or depictions of the French bon gout (good life) in the movies. We have always had a fascination with all things French; from culture, to custom, to cuisine, to cinema. There's no denying French advancements in music, either. From the cathedral to the salon, Leonin and Perotin to composers of chanson and popular music, France has always left a musical mark on the world.
We invite you to join us this spring for a celebration of all things French. Revered composers Bizet, Ravel, Debussy, Chopin, and Faure will be represented, alongside pieces that remind us of French culture, landscape and architecture. We're excited to be joined again this season by flutist Barbara Paziouros Roberts.
Make plans now to join us in May, as we send Postcards from France.
