If you’re a movie buff, you’ve already heard Jil Aigrot’s beautiful voice as the vocalist from La Vie En Rose (Marion Cotillard is talented, but not THAT talented). Saturday night’s Lisner show is a program of French chansons and classics from the likes of Charles Aznavour, Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel, Josephine Baker, Maurice Chevalier, Michel Legrand, Yves Montand & more.
AND WE HAVE TWO FREE TICKETS FOR YOU. Just comment on this post or RT our tweet about it to be entered into the contest for two free will-call tickets!
And if French music isn’t your thing, you should consider Brazilian voice legend Gal Costa’s show tonight. Tickets are $20 for students. [lisner.org]
