Dear Friends!

Join us on Sunday, June 10th, 2018, at 5 p.m. for a sizzling salon of FRENCH WINE, WOMEN AND SONG. From the lavish court of King Louis XIV to the decadent dance halls of Paris, French Wine, Women, and Song is a musical tribute to France's rich and glorious heritage of exquisite vocal writing for chamber, salon, and theater performances. This all-French program is a veritable cornucopia of some of the most bewitchingly beautiful romances ever composed, spanning over 300 years of music from the 17th through the 20th centuries. It will feature a kaleidoscopic array of music by the gifted but (unjustly) seldom-heard women composers, including Pauline Viardot, Cecile Chaminade, August Holmes, and Nadia Boulanger, who were celebrated and whose music was published during their lifetime, as well as that of the revered male composers, including Francois Couperin, Camille Saint-Saens, Jules Massenet, George Bizet, Gabriel Faure, Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel, Darius Milhaud, Francis Poulenc, Eric Satie, and Olivier Messiaen, with whom we are all familiar. Don't miss this dazzling showcase of some of the hottest French Wine, Women, and Song!

Patricia and I look forward to seeing you all on Sunday, June 10th!

Best wishes,
