Sights and Sounds of Montmartre: A Musical Tour of a Parisian Cabaret
The Friends of the Duke University Libraries held their annual Spring Event on Wednesday, April 16, 2014 in the von der Heyden Pavilion at Duke University Libraries. The 2014 Spring Event was inspired by the student-curated exhibit, Cheap Thrills, which offered a whirlwind tour of Montmartre's famed late-19th-century musical revues--the Chat Noir, Folies Bergere, and Moulin Rouge--that offered an escape for members of the bohemian culture. Our program featured the Duke New Music Ensemble, who performed their interpretations of the raucous cabaret music heard throughout the streets of Montmartre. The Duke New Music Ensemble brings together undergraduate and graduate students in performing music written in the 20th and 21st centuries, as well as new works by Duke student composers.
