St Louis French Festival--Feb 25-Mar1

The St. Louis French Festival is an artistic and educational collaboration between the Saint Louis Art Museum, the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra, the Missouri History Museum and the St. Louis Chapter of the American Guild of Organists, with St. Louis Cathedral Concerts spearheading this endeavor. These institutions are joining forces to make February 25 through March 1 in St. Louis a memorable week filled with French culture and charm.

The St. Louis French Festival touts cultural experiences with a uniquely French flair. Events include lectures on French music, art, and architecture, concerts featuring French music, tours of the Saint Louis Art Museum French collections, a special tour of the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis, a theatrical presentation on the French roots of the City of St. Louis, and French wine and cheese tastings.

Most (but not all!) of the events during the St. Louis French Festival are free of charge. For the full schedule see the St. Louis French Festival website. If you haven't been to the Cathedral Basilica yet, I highly recommend you take advantage of the free guided tour (Friday, Feb 26, 4pm) of the Cathedral and the Great Cathedral Organ!
