Remember the show I did at the Alliance Francaise in January? Well, I’ll be performing there tomorrow night as well:
As part of its “Classique de poche”, Alliance Française of Toronto presents an outstanding classical concert:
Friday, March 4, 7:30 PM
Pour les enfants, par les enfants
by the Wanton Fawns
$12/free for Alliance Francaise members
24 Spadina Rd.
With Kristin Mueller-Heaslip (soprano),
Douglas Perry (alto)
Elizabeth McLellan (cello)
And Alexander Sevastian (accordion)
Pour les enfants, par les enfants will be a concert of chamber music depicting the world through the eyes of children. Presented by Alliance Francaise de Toronto on March 4, 2011 as part of their Classiques de poche cycle, the concert will feature viola, cello, accordion, and soprano.
Half of the concert will be a presentation of the Suite pour l’ange Gabriel, music by Christopher Dedrick and text by Gabriel Chalogany, a French boy who wrote the poems between the ages of 9 and 10.
The other half will be comprised of original songs composed by Rebecca Pellett and Caitlin Smith, based on poetry to be commissioned from students in various Toronto French elementary schools (Monseigneur Jamot , Monseigneur-de- Charbonnel, Lycée Français de Toronto and North York centre of Alliance Française of Toronto).
(BTW “alto” is French for “viola”. No, there will not be a counter-tenor singing on this show. There will be a violist. Make of that what you will.)
