School of the Arts Concert Hall
In 1950, Francis Poulenc (1899 - 1963) commented on the difference between German and French music to the author Roland Gelatt, "Our (French) composers, too, write profound music, but when they do, it is leavened with that lightness of spirit without which life would be unendurable."
The Philharmonic Chamber Choir (TPCC) will explore and tackle an all-French programme, bringing to life choral compositions covering the short expanse from pre-WWI to post-WWII, ranging from Claude Debussy to Francis Poulenc through Maurice Ravel. Experience the aural sensuality of Debussy's Trois Chansons de Charles d'Orléans, and the introspective mystique of Poulenc's Sept Chansons.
