This vocal canvas concert celebrates French street scenes and portraits with the sounds of Gabriel Fauré, Ned Rorem, Edith Piaf, Charles Trenet and Elizabeth Doyle. Paris-born vocalist Claudia Hommel has made a specialty of bringing cabaret to galleries and museums along with her musical partner, singer-pianist-composer Elizabeth Doyle, accordionist and clarinetist Walt Mahalovich, and bassist Adam Tully. Join us for a special evening that will transport you to the streets of Paris.
