Next week Gerard will make a special appearance at the press conference introducing the 20th edition of the Fes Festival of World Sacred Music in Paris, France.
The conference will take place at the beautiful Palais du Luxembourg, on the left bank of the Seine, built on the 17th century and currently the seat of the French Senate. The gardens of the palace constitute one of the largest public parks in Paris, and hold a large number of monuments and fountains. This is a calm and exquisite spot during this time of the year.Gerard will also participate in the opening concert of the Fes Festival this June at Bab al Makina. He will be joined onstage by Israeli singer Mor Karbasi to perform in the premiere of the Conference of the Birds — Journey of Cultures, an exciting new work, inspired by The Conference of the Birds by Farid Ud-Din Atta, that was commissioned by the Spirit of Fes Foundation and that will bring together performers from all over the world.
