The evenko foundation has donated 28 musical instruments to École Joseph-François Perrault (JFP), located in the St-Michel neighbourhood in Montréal: 12 flutes, 13 clarinets, 2 cellos, and 1 double bass; a donation worth $30,000. In order to respect the public health measures, the secondary 1 class received the good news via videoconference.
The students also enjoyed a discussion with Arnaud Soly, former JFP student, hosted by Marc-André Grondin. They had the chance to ask Arnaud several questions about his education, his career, and the importance and benefits of arts and music in his life. A warm, funny and inspiring virtual exchange that the participants will never forget.
