Celebrate Valentine’s Day in classic Paris street cabaret style. The French Cabaret Duo transports you to the romantic and nostalgic world of l’amour à Paris, blending their voices in perfect harmony, accompanied by the unique sounds of the Paris street accordion. Join Marick and Elaine, an authentic French cabaret duo, as they perform French songs and encourage guests to become immersed in the language of love. Guests will learn a few French tunes as well as a few French phrases.
Elaine, a native of Montreal, received classical training in voice. She has performed as a recitalist, cantor, chorister and performer in Canada, Europe and the United States. A native of Angers, France, Marick started her eclectic musical career in Chicago playing flute and singing for the Green Mill Poetry Slam.
