Franco-Togolese singer and performer Brice Kapel will be returning to Lexington to perform songs from his upcoming album, Porto Seguro, on May 10th at 7:30 p.m., according to a press release.
The French Departments at Clarke and Diamond Middle Schools announced that Kapel will lead workshops and perform in concert on May 10th during the school day and will later perform the evening concert for the general public.
The evening concert will be held at Cary Hall, 1605 Massachusetts Ave. Doors will open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for students.
Just as Kapel did in 2009 while on tour in the U.S., he will again entertain audiences as he shares his life and French and Togolese cultures through music. Mixing traditional African sounds and songs, and the works of U2, Sting and Peter Gabriel, Kapel takes audiences on a musical journey in French, English, and his native tongue of Mina.
Tickets may be purchased in advance at the Clarke and Diamond Middle Schools from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.; at the Lexington High School World Language Office Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 7:30 to 11:30 a.m., and Tuesday and Thursday from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.; or in Lexington Center at Candy Castle or Macaron Sweeterie.
