Pianist Andrew Rangell presents Francis Poulenc’s music and story of Babar, The Elephant!

« All Events

September 29, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

This is a very exciting special event!  Boston based but world renowned pianist Andrew Rangell will give us an informal presentation of Francis Poulenc’s piano music describing the French tale of Babar, The Elephant.  Andy will perform but in between sections of this wonderfully illustrative piano music, Andy will draw the scenes of Babar right in front of us!  Andy also uses suggestions from the audience, so students will have a chance to participate in the drawing process as well as learn a bit about how composers compose.  Andy presented this workshop for us about ten years ago, so it is truly time to bring this interactive recital back to Newburyport! 4:00pm to 5:30pm, St. Paul’s Church, High Street, Newburyport.
