Une chanson à l’école

Participants will be singing with Ariane Moffatt and the OSM!

This is a very special edition of the Une chanson à l’école out-of-the-box activity that we offer to elementary school pupils and teaching staff in Quebec and the Francophonie. This year, Ariane Moffatt and the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal are getting together to perform an awe-inspiring symphonic version of the song Ensemble, sensibles, composed by this incomparable artist from the Francophone music scene!

It will be an unforgettable event on Friday, September 24, 2021, as hundreds of thousands of children in Quebec and the Canadian Francophonie kick off the 25th edition of the Journées de la culture! Register now to be part of the celebration.

On that day, Ariane will answer children’s questions streamed live from the Journées de la culture Facebook page! Stay tuned for upcoming details!

Watch the video clip of the song Ensemble, sensibles, recorded at the Maison symphonique by Télé-Québec’s La Fabrique culturelle.
