MONTREAL, APRIL 20, 2016 -In recognition of Earth Day, students and staff at St. Gabriel Elementary School in Pointe St. Charles enjoyed an interactive and educational “Recycle Rock” performance by the Junkyard Symphony.

Organized by Spiritual and Community Animator, Veronica D’Agata, the Junkyard Symphony promotes environmental health and awareness through educational entertainment. All objects used in the show were repurposed and reused to create music and loads of smiles.

On hand from Junkyard Symphony were Junkyard Jonny and Compost Chris, who performed a set of comedy infused rhythms and tricks. In addition to the entertainment, the performers also led a discussion about the importance of the three R’s: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

“It was a presentation with fun and smiles but had a serious message for our students,” said D’Agata. “The central focus of this presentation is to make the students aware the beautiful gift we have been given in our planet and how it sustains us. It is important for us to care for what has been given to us and preserve it for future generations.”
