Rendez-vous Musical #95

The FEU’s beloved Sunday concert series is back! During the Rendez-Vous Musical #95 coordinated by Samuel Gaskin, some of the FEU’s talented musicians & guest artists will pay homage to the classics and put their own spin on contemporary works in a dynamic and captivating performance.

These concerts, which are an opportunity for the musicians to present the works they are perfecting or creating, are known for their friendly and warm atmosphere. The audience, delighted by the (re)discovery of classical and contemporary works and new compositions, often stays to chat with the musicians, who take great pleasure in these exchanges, always talking about music and their discipline with great passion.

Parallel to his musical pursuits, Khalid’s deep-rooted passion for diverse cultures, human behavior, and cross-cultural communication is evident in his studies in pedagogy and linguistics, as well as his impactful work as an educator and collaborator.
