Music exchange brings France, Staunton together

Edited by Chris Graham

An international music exchange between Staunton and France gets back going this week with a visit by a group of French gospel singers to the Queen City.

The group will arrive in Staunton later this week to begin preparations for a concert tour beginning Sunday, July 11, with a performance at R.E. Lee High School at 7 p.m.

The schedule also has the French-American group performing at The Paramount Theater in Charlottesville on Monday, July 12, at 7 p.m., and in Washington, D.C., on Bastille Day, Wednesday, July 14.

The American group will make a return trip to France in December to perform three concerts, including a finale in Besancon.

Tickets for the July 11 show in Staunton are $7 and are available at Blue Mountain Coffees, Bookworks and Celebrate!
