FCCC will be performing a wide range of songs from the heart of France with Gounod’s Messe Breve no. 4 in C to New Orleans where The Saints Go Marching In…and everything in between with Mendelssohn’s How Lovely Are the Messengers, the popular Bridge Over Troubled Water, jazzy St. Louis Blues, and Gospel Amazing Grace. Dr. Aymeric Dupre la Tour will participate as guest organist.
