The spring concert of the Francophone Association choir, La Rose des Vents, under the direction of Claire Wilkshire, is happening May 15 at 7:30 p.m. at the French community centre on Ridge Road. The choir’s special guests, Jane Leibel and Maureen Volk of Memorial University’s school of music, will present song cycles by the great Parisian composer Francis Poulenc. The choir will offer a repertoire from the 1500s to the 1980s, about birds and beverages, the pious and the (very) pagan, lumberjacks and lovers … sad lovers, bitter lovers, husbands in hell. There’s a cash bar, and a reception to follow. Feel free to bring along a little pocket money for the bake sale table and tickets on a basket, two fundraisers that will help send the choir to St-Pierre in June. Tickets are $15/$10 at the door, or call 726-4900.
