Freeport High School Chamber Choir to perform at next La Rencontre

The next La Rencontre at L/A’s Gendron Franco Center will feature the 22-member Freeport High School Chamber Choir. La Rencontre (the gathering) is scheduled for Thursday, April 12, starting at 11:25 a.m.

The cost of the meal and the programs is $12 per person. The doors and the bar open at 10 a.m. Guests may contact the Center office for reservations at 783.1585. E-mail reservations may be sent to boxoffice@francocenter.org.

La Rencontre is not restricted to French-speakers or even those of Franco descent. All are welcome to attend this fun monthly meal and event, as long as spots remain open. The home-cooked meal is baked haddock, scalloped potatoes, green beans, rolls, and strawberry cheesecake for dessert.

The event is sponsored by TV5MONDE USA, the global French language entertainment network, broadcasting 24 hours a day, 7 days a week without commercial interruptions - offering the best television programs from France, Belgium, Switzerland and Canada. TV5MONDE can be found locally on Spectrum Cable at Channel 71.

After the meal, students from Durham, Pownal and Freeport who make up the Freeport High School Chamber Choir will perform a 45-minute concert of primarily a cappella songs. The choir is under the direction of Rachel Lawson. Several raffle prizes will be drawn.

The magnificent Gendron Franco Center is handicap accessible and is located on the corner of Cedar and Oxford Streets in the “Little Canada” section of Lewiston, just across the Bernard Lown Peace Bridge from New Auburn.
