Cloutier and Morin photoConcord, N.H.—The Musicians of Wall Street at the Concord Community Music School will present an evening of French music, with selections ranging from a Saint-Saens’s Elegy to a Phantom of the Opera medley.

The concert will feature Music School faculty members Michelle Cloutier, violin, and Jacqueline Morin, piano, and will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, March 27 in the Concord Community Music School Recital Hall, 23 Wall Street in Concord, NH.

Other selections will include Ravel’s virtuosic Tzigane, Franck’s wide-ranging Violin Sonata in A major, and Saint-Saens’s Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso.

“I have always been a fan of Saint-Saens’s compositions,” says Cloutier. “The Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso has always been a favorite of mine. I can remember being a kid, and every time I heard it on the radio, I would dance around the kitchen.”

Admission is $15 for adults and $12 for students and seniors. For more information and to purchase tickets, please call 603-228-1196 or visit www.ccmusicschool.org.
