C'EST SI BON -
from Piaf to Jazz...
France has for long been considered a center for European art and music. The aim of this show is to connect the listener to the deep meaning and expression of the French "chanson" of Michel Legrand, Jacques Prévert, Edith Piaf and other legendary musicians and poets. This concert captures the true essence of French popular classics like "Milord" with a little bit of jazz spin to them. Upon listening, you will suddenly find of yourself in Belleville, Paris, the ethnically diverse district described by Daniel Pennac. Here you will feel the atmosphere of the "banlieue parisienne" where people lead eccentric and creative lives!
This show has already been performed with great success at well-known theaters and concert halls throughout the United States, such as the Count Basie Theatre (NJ), the Bergen Performing Arts Center (NJ), The Egg Hart Theatre (NY), Irvine Hall (PA), and the Berklee Performance Center (Boston, MA). This ensemble of extremely talented musicians will take you on a tour through the traditional French music that has nurtured in the hearts and homes of France for centuries!
