PARIS (AP) _ A French humanitarian agency is giving Sarajevans a reason to go out on New Year's Eve.

The French Association for Humanitarian Action is staging a concert at the besieged city's National Theater featuring American star soprano Barbara Hendricks singing traditional Bosnian and Muslim songs.

Also at the concert will be an orchestra and choir to perform such classics as Gounod's ''Ave Maria'' and Mozart's ''Laudate Dominum Te Deum.''

The program was put together by former Minister for Humanitarian Action Bernard Kouchner.
