“I see this concert as an object in motion, an insight into musical pleasure, and above all else a wonderful opportunity to sing my love for films.” — Jeanne Cherhal
FIAF is delighted to welcome acclaimed French singer Jeanne Cherhal to New York for a one-night-only concert featuring famous theme songs and soundtracks from beloved films by artists ranging from Serge Gainsbourg and Jacques Demy to Pedro Almodóvar.
Cinema in Song has been conceived by Cherhal in collaboration with Thierry Frémaux, director of the Cannes Film Festival, to celebrate some of the most iconic moments in cinema. Cherhal’s beautiful arrangements for solo piano add new dimension to timeless songs chosen from throughout film history. For the concert at FIAF, Cherhal has added several new songs to the program including a special tribute to New York City.
The world tour kicks off with a premiere at Cannes in May, and this will be your only chance to enjoy the show in New York!
Author, composer, performer, pianist, and singer, Jeanne Cherhal gained recognition in the 2000s for her songs that are at turns bold, humorous and moving.
