Join us for an evening celebrating French art, music and culture with the Boston Choral Ensemble (BCE), one of the nation's leading choral groups. Complementing the paintings in the impressionism and post-impressionism galleries, BCE will perform music by late nineteenth and early twentieth composers, including Debussy and Ravel. Program will include short introductions by artistic director Andrew Shenton describing how the music reflects the style and technique of the painters of the day.
Wine and cheese reception to follow in Bravo.
