Expanding our world
In the spring of 2016 we launched an ambitious cultural and musical exchange project between our elementary school choir ensemble and children from Music Heals International in Port au Prince, Haiti. Together, the children helped to creatively arrange and record two songs in English and Haitian Creole. These recordings showcase the incredible talents of both programs, collaborating musically, even though they live thousands of miles apart. Through this experience the children made unique and profound connections to one another by sharing their collective love of making music and by sharing their personal stories, through letters, drawings and even paper airplanes!
