An evening with Edith Piaf’s songs
Many Francophones and Francophiles are familiar with Edith Piaf’s songs, but during this session, participants will achieve three goals:
1. Listening to her most famous songs.
2. Reading and understanding these songs. All French texts will be available through handouts and a translation will be provided for those who need it.
3. Singing!!!! There is nothing like singing Edith Piaf in the middle of a Michigan winter.
Knowledge of French is not required.
Refreshments will be provided and fun guaranteed!
I am French and a teacher of French with years of experience. I am a big fan of classic French chansons and singers. Piaf is only one of them. I am thinking of organizing many other evenings with singers like Brassens, Barbara, Ferré, etc... Singing their songs is energizing and tons of fun as well.
