The Franco Center presents a luncheon with live musical entertainment at its quarterly La Rencontre luncheon Thursday, March 7. Doors open at 10:30 a.m. for socializing. Lunch consisting of pot roast, potatoes, carrots, and dessert is served at 11:30 a.m. followed by featured musical entertainment by Denny Breau. 


Diverse cultures, performing arts, and languages come together at the Franco Center during La Rencontre (the gathering). Traditionally, in Franco culture, big celebratory meals included live music provided by members of the family and their neighbors. Many families made sure their kids each learned to play an instrument to entertain at such gatherings — and so, accordingly, the Franco Center invites local musicians to provide live music for its guests. 

After lunch, Denny Breau will provide the entertainment. Breau started playing guitar when he was nine years old and was performing professionally by his early teens. During more than 30 years as a full-time musician, he has performed with many well-known artists and picked alongside outstanding guitarists
