In a press statement breakfast this morning, the Institut franҫais du Nigéria announced her forthcoming performing arts show in the country’s capital. The Press Release read:
“The French Embassy in Nigéria and the Institut franҫais du Nigéria are pleased to invite in Abuja the “Quatuor A’dam” to perform an “A CAPELLA” Quartet’s performance. This performance will be held on Friday, October 27th at 6.00pm at the National Universities Commission auditorium.
The singers of the “Quatuor A’dam” met during their musical studies in the Netherlands. Composed of a tenor, two baritones and a bass, the quartet performed for the first time in June 2012 at the conservatory of Amsterdam on Francis Poulenc’s ‘Four Little Prayers of St. Francis of Asisi’.
Since then, the quartet has expanded its repertoire which combines German romantic music, gospel, English pop, renaissance song, French variety and has continued to explore the richness of a capella music.
The amazing male vocal quartet handles humour and eclecticism. Four friends who by their complicity and their musical and vocal qualities will make you spend a great moment! The performance is suitable for the whole family and for both English and French speakers. It will be followed by a cocktail.
Before the performance, the “Quatuor A’dam” will facilitate a one-day workshop on French variety with two partner schools in Abuja: Capital Science and Premiere Academy.”
The show will be the Quartet’s first performance in Africa and Nigeria. Unfortunately, there is no provision for a Nigerian group to perform. This was said to have been caused by inadequate time for preparation of a more elaborate event. the Institute hopes to strengthen the ties between both cultures and says it’s a gradual but productive process.
Entrance fee to the event is One thousand Five Hundred Naira (1500 NGN) and tickets can be bought at the gate, on the day of the event.
