America!

Concert version

Sunday 22nd May 2022 - Braine Festival (Collégiale)

From Duke Ellington to Samuel Barber, from Billy Joel to Steve Reich, this programme is a choral panorama full of energy, poetry and swing. The Ensemble Aedes’ renditions of great hits from West Side Story and Mary Poppins are made even greater by Jean-Michel Fournereau’s staging.
