Musical Colours of Fall
Autumn moves in quietly as we notice the multicoloured bouquets blooming in the trees and flying into the sky. At the Centre des musiciens du monde, we are dedicated to awakening senses to the infinite variety of world traditions. And we seek to better understand and appreciate these rich musical colours that open new horizons.
This fall, we will begin to explore this cultural wealth through several original activities: Musical Awakening, Discovery Workshops, Music Explorers Series…
Musical Awakening to world cultures are Saturday trips during which your children will discover a new destination. Based on a multi-sensory experience with musical instruments, their social and musical senses will be enhanced thanks to singing & playing activities.
Discovery Workshops are monthly introductions to musical cultures. Whether you are a beginner or a mid-level musician, experience new sounds, intervals and melodies with an expert instrumentalist.
As for the Music Explorers Series, we invite you to listen and look into a musical culture and meet one of its depositaries. Each event consists in a discussion followed by a musical performance. Our next date will be on December 13, at 7 pm, with our guest Zal Sisskho for an in-depth exploration of Mandingo culture and exquisite kora (harp) repertoires!
In the following weeks, you will be informed of different activities on our website. We invite you to follow them and get in touch with us. Feel free to come and visit us as well!
We wish you a pleasant fall and look forward to greeting you at the Centre des musiciens du monde.
Frédéric Léotar & Kiya Tabassian
