Thursday, November 30 at 8pm : Concert Ensemble Calliopée – The United States « Land of Welcome »


The FEU is very happy to welcome this season in artistic residence the Ensemble Calliopée, which will present two concerts around the theme The United States « Land of Welcome », as well as several school actions and interventions in Parisian hospitals. This residence was made possible thanks to the support of the Mairie de Paris.

This first concert highlights the « land of welcome » that the United States has been since its creation. The intense relations that the « New World », born of the mixture of cultures, and the « Old Continent » of Europe have always maintained have nourished reciprocal influences, from Mozart’s famous librettist to contemporary creation.
