Baryton Francois Le Roux on specialities of French vocal music
Baryton Francois Le Roux is a renowed expert in the special features of singing and interpreting French vocal repertoire. In March 2018, he visited the Sibelius Academy to give a master class for the vocal students eager to learn more about French songs and how to perform them. During a five-day visit mr. Le Roux and the students dived into the songs and opera music of Gabriel Fauré, Henri Duparc, Claude Debussy, Francis Poulenc and Georges Bizet.
