Educational video capsules for young people

In the last few months, conductor Nicolas Ellis and his brother Frédéric Ellis, illustrator, have developed together for the Orchestre de l’Agora a project of musical and educational video capsules for young people aged 8 and under, the “Ellistrations”.

The first episode, Brigitte the Double Bass and Gaston the Violin (starring Chloé Chabanole and Samuel-San Vachon) will be presented to elementary school classes after the holidays, in the context of Zoom meetings with Nicolas Ellis.
