The following event may be if interest to ARCHE families. There are a few ARCHE families involved with the SSYO, and this visiting orchestra is phenomenal. My kids are so excited! All the instruments (including the violins and cellos) are made from material recycled from the landfill (tin, wood, plastic, etc).
Friday, June 1 in Regina, 7:00 pm
The Recycled Orchestra of Cateura
Presented by Dr. Roberta McKay and Elmer Brenner and in partnership with Common Weal Community Arts
See the award winning documentary The Landfill Harmonic. Following the documentary Favio Chavez, director of the Recycled Orchestra, will talk and introduce members of the orchestra who will play their instruments made of garbage, along with the South Saskatchewan Youth Orchestra. Hear how a small grass roots movement to teach kids music created hope and changed a community.
Artists have created art out of garbage and recycled materials. The entire project, over the course of this past year has reached out to the community to come on board to support the importance of the arts as a change agent on the path to reconciliation and to a stronger more viable community.
