The Rendez-vous Musical is back on Sunday, October 16. Join the 2022 group of scholars and musicians in the Grand Salon, a lovely opportunity to meet the new artists joining the 5th floor community this year.
These concerts offer the musicians in residence an opportunity to perform works they are studying or creating in an open and friendly atmosphere. Members of audience, delighted to (re)discover classical, contemporary, and new works, often stay behind to talk with the musicians, who take great pleasure in these exchanges, always speaking about music and their specific disciplines with great passion.
After this concert, we invite you to join Bertille de Baudinière on the Balcony located above the Grand Salon to discover the exhibit Une Histoire de Terre : Green, Blue and Red Earth.
Date : October 16 | Time : 5pm | Facebook Event

The Resident Musicians
Anson Jones is a singer, composer, and songwriter from New York City whose work pulls in turns from modern jazz, modern classical music, and popular music. She graduated from Princeton University in the class of 2022, where she won the Louis Sudler Prize in the Arts and the Isodore and Helen Sacks Memorial Prize in Music. She is 2022-2023 Fulbright-Harriet Hale Woolley scholar and FEU resident, composing a suite of music inspired by Parisian examples of glass architecture. In between academic projects, she enjoys making more commercial music – she loves indie, rock, and folk music, and in June 2022 she released an EP of jazz-rock fusion on Modern Icon Recordings. For both her commercial and academic music, she’s played with her own groups around New York City, joined in writer’s showcases like the New York Songwriters’ Circle and the 5PM Concert Series, and performed at the 2020 Litchfield Jazz Festival. Anson is passionate about many other fields as well – she has passions for music cognition, computer science, art, and architecture. She has even worked at a series of architecture firms and as a data science intern at a neuroscience lab. Her range of interests all inform her approach towards music-making as an interdisciplinary process.
Ian Tomaz is an American pianist currently based in Paris, France. He has studied at the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris Alfred Cortot since 2021, working with Pascal Roge. He is in residence at the Fondation des Etats Unis in 2022-2023 as a Harriet Hale Woolley Scholar, performing concerts as an Artist in Residence at the FEU and around Paris while working on the major solo, chamber and art song compositions of Francis Poulenc. Since moving to Paris, he has performed at Salle Cortot, Musee J.J. Henner and the Centre Culturel Czech and was also chosen as a full scholarship participant for the Academie de Musique Francaise, playing for renowned French pianists including Michel Beroff, Jacques Rouvier, Anne Queffelec, Marie Catherine Girod and Francoise Thinat. He began his studies at the ENMP thanks to the generous support of the Bourse Marandon from the Societe des Professeurs de Français et Francophones D’Amérique in New York.
Born in Boston and raised in Bucharest, Edgar Jaber is currently finalizing a master’s degree in Mathematics and Engineering at CentraleSupélec/Université Paris-Saclay.
He is a pupil of the Romanian pianists Toma Popovici and Viorica Rădoi at the National University of Music in Bucharest. His repertoire focuses mainly on classical and romantic german composers as well as early XXth century modernism.
The American soprano, Marlaina Owens, a native of Los Angeles, has concertized throughout Austria, France, Germany, and the United States. Her operatic credits include Adele and Rosalinda in Die Fledermaus, Nella in Gianni Schicchi, Second Lady in Die Zauberflöte, Lover in Il Tabarro, and the title role in Suor Angelica. Equally home in both theater and music, Owens’ performance artistry is shaped by her captivating stage presence, stylistic versatility and keen sense of dramatic timing. Her engagements in the 2021-22 season include playing Anastasio in Long Beach Opera’s production of Handel’s Giustino, and a young artist position with Opera Santa Barbara Chrisman Studio Program. She will also join Chicago Lyric in their productions of Puccini’s Tosca and Blanchard’s Fire Shut Up in My Bones. She holds a Master’s degree in Voice from University of California, Irvine, and a Bachelor’s degree in Vocal Performance from Loyola Marymount University
