|EMSB STUDENTS SHINE IN L’OR DU ROI MIDAS|
MONTREAL, FEBRUARY 3, 2017 – More than 200 students from nine English Montreal School Board schools have lent their voices to L’Or du roi Midas, a children’s book and audio project that retells the ancient Greek myth of Midas’ gold. Students will join peers from 11 other local schools at the Hellenic Community Centre of Greater Montreal (5757 Wilderton) on February 9 (7 pm) to debut three choral pieces from the CD.
L’Or du roi Midas is a follow up project for music directors Dimitris Ilias and Maria Diamantis as well as author and lyricist Glen Huser and composer Giannis Georgantelis. The four previously teamed up in the retelling of the myth of Demeter and Persephone in the picture book and CD, Le Temps des Fleurs, le temps des neiges.
