From the heights of Marcel Proust to the decadence of the Moulin Rouge, the belle époque (circa 1871-
1914) was a time when culture flourished more than ever in Paris. The salons of Paris became places
where poets, painters and composers would meet to share their art.

The French soprano Laetitia Grimaldi and South African/Israeli pianist Ammiel Bushakevitz offer a program of romantic French songs, presented in the style of a Parisian salon concert from the Belle Époque. The songs will be introduced by the artists, who will communicate with the audience and will talk about the backgrounds of the various songs.

Presented by the Wanganui Music Society.
