EMSB Students Excited to Take Part in Musical Project

Montreal - Thursday, October 12, 2017

This follows up a wonderful experience last year via Le Temps des Fleurs, le Temps des Neiges, a massive multidisciplinary project that like this culminated in the creation of a book/CD for children in French.  

The EMSB will be represented by nine elementary schools: Gardenview and Cedarcrest in St. Laurent, Pierre de Coubertin and Honoré-Mercier in St. Léonard, Edinburgh in Montreal West, Roslyn in Westmount, Royal Vale and Willingdon in NDG and Sinclair Laird in Park Extension. “Staff, students and parents have been very devoted towards this project and I am very happy that the majority of the choristers come from our school board,” said EMSB Chairman Angela Mancini.

Ms. Mancini wishes to express her sincerest thanks to Dimitri Ilias and Maria Diamantis, for once again guiding this extraordinary project.

Copies of a new CD will be available, featuring a complete musical version of the book, with performances by soloists and the combined choirs of 20 different schools from the EMSB, the Sir Wilfrid Laurier School Board, the Commission scolaire Marguerite-Bourgeoys and l’École primaire Socrates & Démosthène.  “The opportunity our students had to perform alongside a symphonic orchestra was a unique musical experience not available to many,” said Ms. Mancini. “More importantly, the children learned the value and rewards that come from teamwork, cooperation, hard work and discipline.
