Semaine de la Francophonie

Every year, the third week in March is an International Celebration of Francophonie, in countries around the world.  Canada has a proud tradition of hosting events to celebrate French language and culture, and Melanie is a regular Francophonie performer.

Melanie's Francophonie events have included:


FRANCOPHONIE CONCERTS - These concerts feature a wide range of French music, depending on the event.  They have ranged from concerts of modern and historic French Canadian music, French Opera recitals, and a mix of Canadian songs and the timeless music of Edith Piaf and Jacques Brel.

OPERA MOUSE - Melanie's award-winning children's show, performed at local schools, orphanages and even shopping malls, in both English and French.

OUTREACH - From adult masterclasses and singing lessons in Khartoum universities, to French musical workshops with primary school students across Asia, Melanie shares her love of the French culture through a variety of workshops.

Melanie has performed Francophonie concerts, outreach and workshops in over a dozen countries, including:
