Chopin by Candlelight

Église Saint Éphrem / Paris / Music

Saint Ephrem Church, on Rue des Carmes in the historic Latin Quarter of Paris, is also called Église Saint-Éphrem-le-Syriaque. Built in 1733, the small church has an imposing arched entrance braced between two Corinthian columns. Inside, the chancel is screened by a Syrian divider of inlaid wood, which boasts three gorgeous multifoil arches. This is the backdrop for the concerts that are regularly offered at Saint Ephrem, known for its superb acoustics. During December, what could be more charming than an intimate concert of Chopin by candlelight? The pianist is Pascal Mantin. —L.J.

This is one of many holiday concerts offered in the churches and cathedrals of Paris. For more information, see the Paris Discovery Guide
