Joëlle Morris Sings Édith Piaf – Alliance Française Du Maine – POSTPONED
March 15, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm$10 – $15
Originally from Evian, France, Mezzo-Soprano Joëlle Morris has performed throughout Europe and the United States. She is admired for her versatility, from the concert stage to the operatic arena, in intimate jazz settings and French cabaret or simply sharing her gifts as a conductor, voice teacher, educator and coach.
Since relocating to Maine in 2011, Joëlle has appeared with the Bangor Symphony Orchestra, the Mozart Mentor Orchestra and is regularly a featured artist at Colby College, Bates College, Bowdoin College, the Franco Center, Waterville Opera House, Nordica Auditorium, Kings Chapel in Boston, the Back Cove Festival and the Early Music Festival in Portland. Her appreciation of chamber music has led her to be the co-founding member of the Amethyst Chamber Ensemble and the Resinosa Ensemble which specializes in 21st century and commissioned works.
Although a classically trained singer, Joëlle has not shied away from other musical genres, touring with the Jean-Marie Reboul Jazz Trio and the Big Bang Thonon throughout Europe. An appreciation of Edith Piaf’s repertoire has led to numerous concerts featuring the grande dame of French chanson, most notably at the 2014 World Acadian Congress in Madawaska, Maine, and numerous times at the Franco Center in Lewiston, Maine. In 2016, she joined the Colby Faculty Jazz Ensemble and was featured at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City in 2017.
In addition to a busy concert schedule in New England and annual summer appearances in France, Joëlle is a Lecturer and Director of Choir at Bates College and is on the music faculty at Colby College. She can be reached via her website at www.joellemorris.com.
