Alumni Live in Concert To Celebrate Rémy Loumbrozo's Career

Wednesday, June 8 | 6:30pm | Free

At the Lycée Français de New York, music is a living tradition carried from one generation to the next by the musician and teacher Rémy Loumbrozo. Rémy has accompanied every Secondary student at the Lycée for the past 42 years. As he will retire from the Lycée at the end of this school year, we have asked his former student musicians to come and pay tribute to the maëstro. Headlined by singer Yamée Couture, who is currently preparing her first album and often performs as the opening act for her father CharlÉlie, musicians, singers and dancers come together to imagine an eclectic and moving concert whose only requirement, in homage to their teacher, is the quality.

  • A Window on a Forgotten Heritage: Philosophy in Baghdad, Cordoba, and Cairo with Al Fârâbî, Averroès and Maïmonide

    By Professor Ali Benmakhlouf

    Conference | Thursday, May 12 | 6:30pm


    45-minute presentation followed by Q&A, in French with simultaneous translation into English.

    From the 9th century on, while Europe was sinking into the somber centuries of the Middle Ages, the Arab-Muslim empire experienced an enormous intellectual and scientific boom, becoming an important center of civilization whose influence extended far beyond the Mediterranean.  
    Through three great philosophers (Al Fârâbî, Averroès, Maïmonide) and three key cities (Baghdad, Cordoba, Cairo), Professor Ali Benmakhlouf will introduce you to this often-overlooked period of history. He will discuss the contribution of these thinkers to questions that are still very current, such as the relationship between science and religion. He will also discuss the influence of this intellectual boom on the European Renaissance, particularly in scientific fields such as medicine and cosmology.

  • Why Forests Are So Important

    Panel Talk | Tuesday, April 26 | 6.30pm

    With JOE BAKER, member of the Delaware Tribe of Indians of Oklahoma and and co-founder executive director of Lenape Center in Manhattan, CHARLES McNEILL, Senior Advisor, Forests & Climate at UN Environment Programme (UNEP), PASCALE D'ERM, author and director of Natura, and MARY BETH GALLAGHER, Director of Engagement at Domini.

    In this panel, we will underline the role of forests and trees in our survival by listening to different voices. Trees surround us and we take them for granted when really they are of utmost importance and in danger. We will not solve the problems of deforestation during this panel but raise our awareness on this issue. Our guests will emphasize the reasons why trees are vital from a physical, ecological, and economic point of view, and the importance of preserving them.
