LEWISTON — Community members are invited to participate in a French sing-along session from 1:15 to 2:15 p.m. on Wednesday, April 20, at the University of Southern Maine’s Lewiston-Auburn College, 51 Westminster St.

Aliette Couturier will lead attendees in singing a selection of local Franco favorites such as “Je Reviens Chez Nous (I Return Home)” and “Le Bon Vin m’Endort (Good Wine Puts Me to Sleep).” Providing musical accompaniment will be accordionist Irene Coady and pianist Jeannette Gregoire.

This is the fourth installment in a monthly series of French song sessions launched in January by the Franco-American Collection at USM LAC. Attendance has been growing every month as people return with additional family members and friends. Song books are provided so that even those who are unfamiliar with the songs or less-than-fluent in the French language can easily follow along.

The event will take place in Room 170, which is located just down the hall from the collection’s reading room. Admission is free to all. More information is available by calling the Franco-American Collection office at 753-6545.
