Vive la musique! Vive l'amour! Vive la France! Atlanta Freedom Bands presents a guided tour of la belle France through the music of French composers. Our voyage stretches from Paris to Provence and from the Révolution to modern times. The program features favorites and lesser-known gems by Hector Berlioz, Camille Saint-Saëns, Jaques Offenbach, François Gossec, Serge Lancen, Darius Milhaud and Claude Debussy, who celebrates his 150th birthday this year. Each piece on the program has an interesting story to tell.
