Thursday November 14, 2013

The Alliance Française of the Lake Champlain Region presents a local treasure—Grammy-nominated flutist Laurel Ann Maurer accompanied by gifted South Burlington pianist Claire Black—in an all-French classical music performance.  
Claire Black is an accomplished pianist and has performed extensively as a soloist and collaborator throughout North America. Claire regularly accompanies the Burlington Choral Society and the Hinesburg Artist Series South County Chorus.

The concert features a wide-ranging, dynamic program of great French works for flute, beginning with the Renaissance period and ending with four movements from the delightful Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano by Claude Bolling. 

The November 21 event at St. Michaels College McCarthy Arts Recital Hall opens with a 6:30 reception. The performance begins at 7:30 p.m. 

Ticket revenues will support the Alliance Française’s French language programs for children. “Promoting French language and culture is at the heart of the mission” said Alliance Francaise President Linda Pervier.

Checks and cash will be accepted at the event.  Any funds given over and above the ticket cost will be receipted as tax-deductible contributions to the Alliance Française of the Lake Champlain Region’s French education programs. To reserve call 802-310-8050 or send email to info.aflcr@gmail.com.
