Voyage à Paris! Songs of France
Sun, June 28, 2020 2:00 PM, EDT
It is my greatest pleasure to bring you this program, presented by multi-talented vocalist, writer, and poet, Jasmine Wilson as well as myself on piano!
The two of us planned performances in France that would have happened right about now. So we thought we'd do a virtual idea instead, complete with evocations of melodic Chansons, Edith Piaf, Quincy Jones (in hommage to his travel studies with Nadia Boulanger), and much more!
Expect some extemporaneous costumes and set design, so come one come all!
A portion of the proceeds will be going to a charity supporting Black Lives Matter!
Satie: Gymnopedie No. 1 (for piano)
Debussy: "Beau soir"
Fauré: "Après un rêve"
Gounod: "Que fais-tu, Blanche Tourterelle?"
Improvisation on "Milord" (famously sung by Edith Piaf)
"Chile" by Jasmine Wilson herself!
Improvisation on "Ai No Corrida" arranged by Quincy Jones
Song from "Cheri", a musical in the works by Jasmine and Joey
