Youth Outreach Program with Ensemble 18c.

 

Every year the Sackville Festival of Early Music offers outstanding musical experiences to audiences in the Tantramar region. Our annual series of early music performances showcases Canadian musicians of international stature and renown. Our Youth Outreach Program enables a selection of these artists to perform for students in the area schools, in keeping with our belief that young people in small towns and rural areas should have access to excellence in music. This year the Ensemble 18c. of the Early Music Studio of Saint John will be performing at Tantramar Regional High School, Marshview Middle School, Lou McNarin School, Salem Elementary, and Cumberland North Academy.

 

Our Youth Outreach Project:

      • Broadens the musical experience of young people in small towns and rural areas, acquainting them with styles of   

         music they may have never encountered before 

      • Introduces young people to the musical roots of their cultural heritage

      • Introduces them to the culture of other world groups through music

      • Provides interactive sessions that allow for students to meet and talk with musicians of international calibre

      • Allows students to learn about the instruments and musical styles of earlier times

      • Enhances music education programs in schools

      • Opens new horizons, on occasion inspiring young people to pursue musical studies
