RENDEZ VOUS AVEC PATRICIAThis Sunday 10 September At 18h30
Our Guests of Honor:
Claudia Hommel Paris-born singer-actor Claudia Hommel returns from Chicago to our salon to introduce her latest project, the Jazz Faure Project.And what is the recipe for this cabaret confection of French impressionism and American jazz?
Take the art songs Gabriel Faure created for his friends to sing at salons of the 1880s and 1890s, bring in a second singer to enrich the dialogue, add a jazz combo of piano, bass, drums and saxophone, clarinet or flute, introduce the 20th century rhythms of swing, bossa nova, jazz waltz and voila! a 21st century way to celebrate these wonderful songs.Claudia and the Jazz Fauré Ensemble are in the midst of recording the first volume of their project, so she'll present a short video from a recent performance at the Green Lake Festival of Music (Wisconsin) and CD excerpts from the forthcoming album. You may even want to leave the evening sporting a Jazz Fauré Renoir t-shirt or tote bag to show your support.
Visit for a preview.
