Belle Époque, the beautiful period, was a time of optimism, peace and prosperity in France after a time of war. The great Paris Exposition of 1878 brought great musicians from around the world to perform in Paris. Café-concerts and cabarets like Le Chat Noir and Moulin Rouge were introduced in the bohemian district of Montmartre. Experience the exhibition Van Gogh, Monet, Degas and Their Times virtually, gather ingredients to create your our signature cocktail, the Gloria, with Elvie’s Beverage Director, Brandi Carter and enjoy a French music set with vocalist Alley Marshanne Jenkins, pianist Tyler Kemp, guitarist David Keary and bassist Johnny Hubbard from the comfort of your own home. *This virtual program can be accessed by Zoom invitation or on Facebook Live. PERFORMERS/PARTNERS Alley Marshanne Jenkins is no stranger to music. She is a vocalist, writer and teacher, and enjoys singing in a plethora of genres.
