Au Revoir, Bon Voyage
A big thank you also to The Peoples Music School and Merit Music School. . The French orchestra's performances at their schools were met with enthusiasm and interest by attentive audiences both at Merit Music School and Hibbard Elementary School where The Peoples Music School has 170 students in a wonderful program modeled after the Venezuelan El Sistema program. They also played a concerts at Preston Bradley Hall in the Chicago Cultural Center and last night at Bennett Gordon Hall at Ravinia.
While a lot of work and effort on everyone's part, these cultural exchanges are so valuable in young people's education, giving them an expanded perspective on the world. We look forward to pursuing additional opportunities.
please send them to Carl.
