French-language holiday sing-along


(L. to r., from front) Irene Mercier, Jeannine Doucette, Mary LeClerc, Jeannette Gregoire, Aliette Couturier, Helene Sylvain, Jacynthe Jacques and Gail Lawrence will lead a French-language holiday sing-along session on December 12.

A special French-language holiday sing-along session will take place on Friday, December 12 at 2 p.m. in the Chapel at D’Youville Pavillion in Lewiston. The program is free and all are invited to attend. Songbooks will be available, so those who are unfamiliar with the songs or less-than-fluent in French may easily follow along.

Jacynthe Jacques, Aliette Couturier and friends will lead those attending in a selection of festive local holiday favorites, such as “Le P’tit Rene au Nez Rouge” and “Il Est Ne le Divin Enfant.” Providing musical accompaniment will be pianist Jeannette Gregoire.

“We’re looking forward to sharing our music with the residents of D’Youville Pavillion and with the community,” said Couturier. “This venue allows us to accommodate many people, and we certainly welcome anyone who likes music – Francos and non-Francos alike – to come join us for this special event.”

Organized in 2010 by the Maine Folque Co-op, in collaboration with USM LAC’s Franco-American Collection, an ongoing series of monthly French-language sing-along sessions takes place September through June, usually at the college, along with occasional outings to local retirement communities and nursing homes and this annual holiday edition.

D’Youville Pavillion is located at 102 Campus Avenue in Lewiston. For more information, call Jacynthe Jacques at 576-4109.
