Past: Concert By Dennis Stroughmatt et l'Esprit CREOLE

Kern Hall at Wehking Alumni Center

Join us in Kern Hall at Wehking Alumni Center on April 12th for a concert by Dennis Stroughmatt et l'Esprit Creole

Fingers and bow flying, Dennis Stroughmatt takes listeners on a musical odyssey. This is the story of the French Creoles who founded the Illinois-Missouri Country near the Ozark foothills more than 300 years ago. Their songs, stories, and language remain largely intact and true to the traditions that have been passed down for generations. L'Esprit Creole's music bridges the gap between contemporary and Louisiana Cajun styles.

This is a no-cost event hosted by the Historic Preservation Alumni Chapter and funded by a generous donor.

Dennis Stroughmatt et l'Esprit Creole are passionate ambassadors of Creole music and traditions, expanding interest and excitement in a region that has been long ignored by the history books. As they say in the hills, "On est toujours icitte: We are still here!"
