Budding Patrons of the Arts
Stanstead, QC Derby Line, VT,
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.
