As part of the Qatar-France year of culture and Francophonie month, the French Institute in Qatar and its partners, Qatar Music Academy and the Francophone Qatari Women Association, present “A musical evening in Paris”.
Come and discover the best musical moments which placed Paris at the heart of the global cultural stage from the 19th century to the fifties!
Musicians from the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra and Qatar Music Academy Faculty members will recreate the inspiring atmosphere of the era, from Pauline Viardot’s musical gatherings (with famous composers like Chopin or Fauré) to the beginnings of jazz music with “An American in Paris”.
Members of the Francophone Qatari Women Association will introduce each piece in French.
Free and open to all. Online booking recommended on Katara’s website.
