Meadows Wind Ensemble: “The French Connection”

When: 
Friday, October 17, 2014 - 8:00pm

The MWE’s French Connection might not feature a high-speed car chase, with Gene Hackman pursuing an elevated train in a 1971 Pontiac LeMans, but it will feature a menu of works by composers who share a “connection” to France, and Paris, in particular. The program will also honor faculty artist and professor of harpsichord and organ Larry Palmer, who is celebrating his 45th year at SMU Meadows, in a performance of Francis Poulenc’s Suite Francaise for harpsichord and chamber orchestra.
