Stanstead, QC Derby Line, VT,

Stanstead’s

ele­men­tary school stu­dents, from Sun­ny­side and Jardin-des-Fron­tieres, in what was for many of them a first visit to the world-fa­mous Haskell Opera House, got a taste of clas­si­cal mu­sic, last Wed­nes­day. Mem­bers of the youth wing of the Sher­brooke Sym­phony Orches­tra as well as mem­bers of

Je­unesse Mu­si­cales du Canada took to the Haskell stage to put on a spe­cial per­for­mance for the stu­dents. The event, aimed at in­tro­duc­ing the stu­dents to the lo­cal land­mark and to clas­si­cal mu­sic, was fi­nanced by the town of Stanstead, the CLD of the MRC of Mem­phrem­a­gog, and the Con­fer­ence Re­gionale des Elus de l’Estrie.

Mu­si­cians from the Je­unesse Mu­si­cales du Canada had fun per­form­ing for an Opera House full of stu­dents last Wed­nes­day at the Haskell.
