CHANSONS FRANÇAISES

Saturday, March 29, 2014 - 8 PM

From Spain we travel to France for an evening of souvenirs. While Ravel’s String Quartet and the Rhapsody for violin and orchestra Tzigane are bound to transport you into this great composer’s eclectic world, it is the illustrious melodies of Piaf, Brel, and Aznavour that will make you sing along with us.
