Sidewalk Chalk

Geordie Productions visited Roslyn School as part of this year's tour to present the play "Sidewalk Chalk" written by Cliff Cardinal and directed by Dean Patrick.

Best Friends Grace and Gary spend every day drawing a fantastical chalk world on the sidewalk in front of Grace’s house. As Gary struggles to deal with his parent’s separation he tells Grace they can’t spend time together anymore because she’s too little- He wants a Separation from her. As things in their world shift, the chalk drawing beneath their feet opens up and sends them spiralling into the universe that they created. Now they must fight for a way home together and learn about what being best friends really means.

Le Temps des Fleurs – Le Temps des Neiges

A total of 320 Montreal elementary school choristers, a symphonic orchestra and renowned Quebec actor Guy Nadon have collaborated on a children’s book/CD about the ancient Greek myth of Persephone and how the seasons came to be. Le Temps des Fleurs, le Temps des Neiges is a massive multi-disciplinary project culminating in the creation of a book/CD for children in French, which explores the ancient Greek myth of the Goddess Demeter, her daughter Persephone and the unbreakable bond that exists between a mother and her child.

The project kicked off on Thursday, Oct. 29 at the Embassy Plaza in Laval with red carpet event. That will be followed by a formal launch on Wed. Nov. 11 (7 pm) at Victoria Hall in Westmount. On Sunday, Nov. 22 (11:30 am) there will be a presentation at the Salon du Livre de Montréal at the Place Bonaventure.

Written by Canadian children's book author Glen Huser and adapted to French by Jean Antonin Billard and Robert Paquin, the book includes an operatic version of the story on CD, composed by Athens-based Giannis Georgantelis. Brilliantly illustrated by three time Governor General Award winning illustrator Philippe Béha and narrated by Nadon, le Temps des Fleurs, le Temps des Neiges is a collaboration of Panarmonia Atelier Musical with Quebec publishing house Planète Rebelle and Chroma Musika,.

The accompanying CD features a complete musical version of the book with performances by soloists and the combined choirs of 12 different schools from the EMSB, the Commission scolaire Marguerite Bourgeoys and l’École primaire Socrates & Démosthène. The children were accompanied by the Orchestre Symphonique Pop de Montréal under the direction of Professor Alain Cazes. Net profits from the sales within the school systems will be donated to the participating schools.

Project musical directors, Dimitri Ilias and Maria Diamantis, hope the children of the choir gain a better understanding and appreciation for ancient Greek mythology, broaden their horizons coming in contact with great Canadian artists and learn how a professional CD is made — from recording to final mixing, editing and mastering with Concordia Professor and Juno Award Judge, Dr. Mark Corwin. The opportunity to perform alongside a symphonic orchestra is a unique musical experience not available to many. Even more importantly, the children learned the value and rewards that come from teamwork, cooperation, hard work and discipline.
