Alliance Française Mpls/St Paul

Join Alliance Française Mpls / St Paul for a concert to benefit the repair of the Alliance’s fine Steinway grand piano.

Suggested donation: $10

Call 612-332-0436 now to reserve your place or RSVP HERE!

The program will be held in the Grande Salle, a wine, cheese, and fruit reception will follow.

Jim Reilly has an unusual career as both a singer and a pianist: he has performed in over twenty states as well as Norway and Holland, and is a frequent performer here at the Alliance Française, spear-heading the fundraising for repairs on our wonderful Steinway piano.

The first half of the program will feature Jim performing music from 1905 by Debussy, Amy Beach, Janáček, Gaubert (for flute & piano, with Claudia Schnitker) as well as an earlier piece by Gabriel Fauré. The second half of our program will feature two of Jim’s recently completed song cycles for tenor and piano: “ecclesiastes fantasy” and “Three Walking Songs,” performed with local pianist Beatrice Giere, who will also perform a set small piano pieces written by Jim.

This unusual program of old and new music will benefit the repair fund for the Alliance’s fine Steinway grand piano; the fund is now nearing the $6,000 to $10,000 needed to put the piano in top condition!
