MLE: Foreign Legion Music Band in Paris

Yesterday, February 7, 2018, the Foreign Legion Music Band (MLE) performed an excellent concert in Paris, dedicated to the soldiers wounded during military operations and the families of those soldiers killed in action. The annual charitable concert is organized by the Military Governor of Paris. For its high prestige, the Foreign Legion Music Band was asked to be the main participant in this important event.

The concert took place in the Cathedral of Saint-Louis des Invalides, a large church with the tomb of Napoleon Bonaparte. The cathedral is part of the Hôtel national des Invalides (The National Residence of the Invalids), a complex of buildings containing museums and monuments relating to the military history of France, as well as a hospital and a retirement home for war veterans.

French soprano Julie Cherrier participated in the concert too, accompanied by the legionnaires.
