Plein Air Concerts return to the jewel-box courtyard of the Alliance Française! Enjoy an hour of music with your friends while sipping rosé wine in an intimate setting.

Actor-singer Claudia Hommel and accordionist Patricia Spaeth bring us chansons from Mistinguett to Edith Piaf. Heard last year in the Alliance’s sold out Homage to Josephine Baker, Claudia is your ticket to Paris and beyond.

Claudia Hommel plays the role of chanteuse boulevardière to the hilt… the quintessential French entertainer offering an unspoken guarantee that you’ll think you paid for the evening in euros!– Chicago Reader

Door opens at 6:00 p.m. Live music starts at 6:30 p.m. Please enter via 810 N. Dearborn. Each table of four includes one bottle of Rosé de Provence and salted nuts. Reserve early! Seating is limited in our intimate courtyard. The event moves to our salon in inclement weather.
