Jacques Brel à Wheaton College
Posted on July 9, 2014
After a decade of success with performances in Japan, Russia, and Morocco, as well as a 26-month run in Paris, André Nerman and his troupe will return to Wheaton with "Jacques Brel ou l'Impossible rêve," featuring Mr. Nerman (voice, guitar), Nelly Anne Rabas (voice), and Laurent Clergeau (piano). Brel (1929-1978) is a towering figure of chanson and Nerman's company provides a rare opportunity to hear his best-known songs as he wrote them, in French. Monday 29 September, 7:30 p.m., Weber Theatre. This event is sponsored by the The Evelyn Danzig Haas '39 Visiting Artists Program, the SGA Venture Fund, Wheaton WorldFest, the Department of French Studies, and the Office of the Provost. Tickets are free and available at the door.
