“La Boîte à Musique” (music box) of French song memories
Accompanied by piano improvisations, during this choral concert singers will take the audience on a journey through 15 centuries of French songs, with each song illustrating a page of France’s cultural heritage up to present times. Ranging from the melodies of Claude Debussy to those of Serge Gainsbourg, this musical journey will include unforgettable songs and some of the most beautiful lyrics ever written in French.
A native of Southern France with a PhD in music and musicology, Henri Pompidor studied music, organ music and choral singing at France’s Regional Music Conservatory of Toulouse and University of Paris-Sorbonne. In 2006, he joined the staff of Mahidol University—the university with the most extensive music curriculum in Thailand—as choir master and choral director. He currently also serves as choir master of the Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra’s Philharmonic Choir.
The concert will be staged at the auditorium of Alliance francaise Bangkok, Sathorn Tai Road. Tickets are THB 250 for students and members and THB 400 for public. The tickets can be purchased from Alliance francaise’s library (closed on Monday).
