Edith Piaf Tribute at the Village Theatre in Honor of the Liberation of Paris
SonoMusette will transport listeners to 1900s Paris with French classics.
DANVILLE, Calif. (August 3, 2023): On August 19 at 7 p.m., the Village Theatre and Art Gallery will host an evening of Parisian music by famed French Singer Edith Piaf. This concert will be performed by SonoMusette who will perform Edith Piaf’s music and other famous songs from the 1900s in honor of the Liberation of Paris during World War II.
SonoMusette features native Parisian singer Mimi Pirard, who will transport you back to 1900s Paris through the music of Edith Piaf. This is the Paris that is often romanticized within our imaginations. Mimi Pirard’s powerful and emotional interpretations of these classic songs will provide a fresh and exciting take that remains faithful to the spirit and tradition of the original music. The musicians of SonoMusette weave musette accordion, piano, guitar, upright bass, and drums to create a musical tapestry for these enchanting songs and melodies. The concert will also feature a set of music made famous by other iconic French performers of the era.
From her beginnings as a child singing on the streets of Paris to becoming an international star, Edith Piaf remains at the front as the voice of French music. Much of Piaf’s music resonated with her own personal life as she specialized in Chanson and Torch Songs about love, loss, and sorrow. Known as “The Little Sparrow” Piaf ascended beyond Paris to worldwide fame through timeless classics such as “Padam”, “Milord,” “L’Accordéoniste,” and “La Vie En Rose.”
