I Love Paris


I Love Paris (well, who doesn’t) is a song from Cole Porter’s popular show “Can-Can” which ran for 892 performances on Broadway from 1953 until 1955. The show, set in Paris in 1893 tells the story of a dance-hall in Montmartre owned by La Môme Pistache which is being threatened with closure by a self-righteous judge who disapproves of the popular but scandalous dance the “Can-Can” performed there. Much fun and frolic ensues, and there is a happy ending. Canzona member Laura Pryzgoda will sing the solo in this ensemble number by local arranger Paul Osborne with guest artist Duane Inglish adding that special Parisian touch on the accordion. Ooh la la!
