Independence Day Lunchtime Concert

On Monday, July 4, join us at the FEU to celebrate Independence Day with our traditional lunchtime concert followed by lunch in the rose garden! This informal event brings together our audience, residents, alumni and staff from the Cité internationale campus before the summer break.

Daniel Schreiner, alumnus pianist, will be in Paris to give a concert (on July 5 at 7.30pm) and we are delighted that he has offered to perform a short program of upbeat classical, ragtime and jazz music at 12:30pm in the Grand Salon.

The lunch is at 1pm. All proceeds will go to the FEU community garden and to a humanitarian cause. In the spirit of being eco-friendly, the meals will be homemade and prepared based on the number of reservations. Please sign up no later than Wednesday, June 29. 

Mandatory lunch reservation
