Ensemble Vivant performing and interacting with children at Bayview Public School in Midland, ON in October, 2016.
The reactions and responses of the kids to Ensemble Vivant’s music was palpable. The vast majority of these children had not heard classical, jazz and related popular styles of music, and of the few who had, none of them had experienced live performances of this caliber. They were all excited to hear more of this music and to have the chance to make music themselves.
Thank you to Euterpe Corporation for making this lasting and enriching experience for the children possible.
