At last, a musical and educational project created especially for Grade 1 and 2 students, giving teachers a fun way to introduce them to classical music.

The Orchestre de l’Agora and its conductor Nicolas Ellis have developed a series of illustrated videos—entitled “Ellistrations”—featuring endearing characters and musicians from the orchestra. The well-thought-out narrative structure has been fine-tuned with the aim of introducing students to classical music and encouraging them to explore this world they are all-too-often unaware of.

After the series has been shown, Orchestre de l’Agora conductor Nicolas Ellis will host a workshop to answer all of the students’ questions about classical music, instruments, orchestras, and his work. Joining him will be the two musicians from the videos: Chloé Chabanole (violin) and Samuel-San Vachon (double bass).
