Originating in Left Bank studios in 1895, The Atelier Concert Series became part of the cultural activities at the American Church in Paris during the early 1930s. These concerts provide a performance opportunity in Paris for talented musicians of all nationalities.
A different program is offered each Sunday evening at 17h00, September through November and January through June. There is no admission fee, but a free-will offering is taken at the door to support the series.
To receive detailed programs, updates and other announcements about this series, send a message to our Music Director and put “Atelier Mailing” in the subject line. All mailings are done in blind copy and for this purpose only.
The Brilliance will perform in concert at the American Church in Paris on Saturday, 19 October at 20h.
David Gungor and John Arndt, the band The Brilliance, will play live at the American Church in Paris on Saturday, 19 October at 20h joining an expanded string quartet and choir from our ACP community. Their eclectic songs combine symphonic, classical, pop and electronic elements to explore issues of social justice and inspire reflection and connection with others. They will perform songs from their latest album, Suite No. 1 Oh Dreamer which was inspired by the stories of immigrants known as “dreamers” in the U.S., pieces from their yet un- released album Suite no. 2 The World Keeps on Spinning and well-loved favorites such as their peace-making opus Brother. A champagne and cake reception will follow in the Theatre. Our very own Devon Graves will open for The Brilliance at 19h. Don’t miss this very special evening!
Acclaimed across the U.S. for their thoughtful, relevant, eclectic spiritual protest music, David Gungor and John Arndt cross the genres of classical and pop, electronic and acoustic, exploring the creative imagination and the power of beauty to evoke empathy that leads to Christ-like action in the world.
David Gungor is a singer, songwriter and guitarist based in New York City where he also serves as a pastor at Trinity Grace Tribeca. He is married with four children. John Arndt is a classical pianist, producer and composer, and has performed all over the world in a wide variety of venues and musical styles. They created The Brilliance in 2010, crafting music that gives listeners “time and space to fully soak in the beauty that lies in every lyric and sonic nuance.”
