Upcoming Friends' Outings
The first Friends Outing of 2017 will take place on Wednesday February 22nd at the Gate Theatre. Friends of the Festival are invited to attend a performance of Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris.
The poignant, passionate and profound songs of Belgian songwriter Jacques Brel are vividly brought to life in this intense musical experience. Master of the chanson, Brel’s legendary, romantic works have been translated and recorded worldwide by artists such as Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra and Judy Collins.
