Clotilde & Alexandre

Part of series: American Songbook Festival 2015

Friday 26 & Saturday 27 June 2015 7pm

Melbourne Recital Centre, 31 Sturt Street, Melbourne

Duration: 1 hour 30 min (incl. interval)
Admission: Standard $38 ($28 concession)

A powerful program featuring the songs of Nina Simone, Ani Difranco, Tracey Chapman and Maya Angelou.

“Revisiting this repertoire through my own eyes, own voice, and own experience as a woman, I’d like to pay tribute to these fabulous vocalists, songstresses, songwriters and above all, women.” Clotilde

Women have always played an extraordinary part in the history of most countries. In America, women have lent their voice to the struggle for their own rights, civil rights, human rights, and the movement for peace, becoming examples of empowerment and endurance. The women of the American Songbook are often emblematic of those movements.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre with the support of the French Embassy in Australia and the Alliance Française de Melbourne.
