Join the French Cultural Center for a musical trip to Paris from Boston in 3 acts.
This event features an international lineup of musicians exploring a French and Bostonian repertoire through piano, clarinet, and vocal performance.
A highlight of the concert is the US premiere of contemporary French composer Jean-Pierre Armanet’s composition ‘The T’, dedicated to our historic subway, the oldest in North America.
The program also includes music for clarinet and piano by Poulenc, Debussy and a dramatic solo cantata by Berlioz, all performed by graduates of the Longy School of Music of Bard College in Cambridge, which was founded by a Frenchman.
Presented in partnership with Ballets Russes Arts Initiative.
