AFCM Evening Series: Entente Cordiale


These full-length evening concerts present a wonderful range of repertoire from classic favourites to lesser known works and exciting new commissions.

In the first of our Evening Series concerts, the historic 1904 Entente Cordiale agreement between the British and French ended a long period of antagonism between these two great nations. That cross-border cooperation sent our Artistic Director on a quest to discover music from both sides of The Channel composed in that same year.
