Paris Sepia

Severson Dells Nature Center
Susan Severson, granddaughter of Harry and Fannie Severson and her husband to play at Severson Dells and you’re invited! Susan Severson and Jean-Paul Barbier are back on Saturday, September 19th from Paris. (NO, not Paris, IL)
Paris Sepia played at the Nature Center a few years ago and blew the capacity crowd away. Their presentation is powerful in that it gives the listeners a musical treat as well as an education about the music of Paris at the turn of the century. It is a unique blend of instruments and voices. With Paris Sepia you learn to know and appreciate French musette, instrumental music as song, at its origins. Their music is homage to the French and Italian musicians and composers who conceived the French waltz (Amelia Poulain, La Mome…) loved all around the world.
Susan Severson and Jean-Paul Barbier have been students of music their entire lives. They have played for diverse structures (cafes, cultural associations, and festivals) in France, Italy, Poland and the United States. They develop a great rapport with their listeners and their music is alive with feeling and enthusiasm.
