PORT NEIGHBOURS

Musical Tour in Mercier-Hochelaga-Maisonneuve schools


 

Since early March, the   Samajam | Port of Montreal Caravan of Success has been on tour in Mercier-Hochelaga-Maisonneuve. Over the course of this extensive tour, close to fifty participatory music workshops with shows will be put on the borough’s schools and Montreal youth centres. These free events will reach no fewer than 5,000 young people. Through this project, youth learn how to play drums, sing and dance under the watchful eyes of Samajam’s professional musicians and activity leaders.   

“The Caravan of Success brings first and foremost a message of student retention and collective success. Through percussion music, we develop a love of school and wanting to attend,” said Louis Bellemare, founder and CEO of Samajam.

“Young people from the various neighbourhoods running alongside the Port of Montreal benefit from what they are taught by Samajam’s devoted team, giving them incredible advantages through music, “ said Christine Beaulieu, Manager, Community Relations at the Port of Montreal. The Port of Montreal is a proud partner of Samajam.
