This beautiful concert will feature selections of romantic music that have come from France and gained international popularity. 
The concert will feature songs "La Vie En Rose," by the world-renowned French vocalist Edith Piaf, Jacques Prévert’s "Autumn Leaves," Yves de Montand "C'est si bon," Michel Fugain's "Chante, comme si tu devais mourir demain," and many more women-made classics.
The concert will be performed by Gabriele Tranchina, who has been described as a '"German-born, Parisian chanteuse with Brasilian stylings."
She sings comfortably in French, Spanish, English, Portuguese, and Italian. 
She was born in Germany, but her love for other cultures inspired her travels throughout Europe and Asia. 
Gabriele Tranchina, along with her ensemble and her Music Director Joe Vincent Tranchina, honor these women with the language of love: music.
