Cellissimo is excited to be traveling to Ottawa, Ontario and Montreal, Quebec over Spring break. The group will be performing their 80 minute program in a formal concert in Ottawa as well as portions of the program in three different schools. This international cultural exchange in the schools will be be exciting for all the students involved. We will be performing in French schools in Montreal and our students will have to truly use music as a common language
In between our performances, Cellissimo will be visiting a working sugar bush to watch maple syrup production – late March is prime time for this age old tradition. We will also tour the Center Block, which houses the federal parliament branch of government and will check out the Royal Canadian Mounted Police stables and the home of the Governor-General (the head of state). In Montreal, there will be a walking tour of Old Montreal, amongst other activities.
You will have the treat to hear Cellissimo’s program in the First Congregational Church of Western Springs sanctuary on May 21 at 7:00 pm. Mark it in your calendar!
