Under a cultural partnership between our A violin can change the world program and the Fondation Royaumont, the young violinists from Persan and their parents were invited to historic Royaumont Abbey for a day of music and discovery.
The first item on their busy schedule was a children’s tour with interactive games, made even more magical by falling snow.
Afterwards, parents and children participated in a “music in movement” workshop led by Louise Calame, a violinist who specializes in Dalcroze Eurythmics. Under her guidance, old and young alike explored the secrets of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.
At the end of the visit, everyone gathered to enjoy delicious treats prepared by the Abbey’s kitchen.
Our warmest thanks to the organizers who made it possible for parents and children to enjoy this special time together.
One mother wrote to express her appreciation: “We had a wonderful time, and the snow made it even more beautiful. The staff at the Abbey gave us a warm welcome, the music program was fun and very well thought out, and Louise, who led the workshop, was charming. We also enjoyed the mother-daughter time we had during the interactive tour and games. And everyone loved the food. My daughter was very happy to tell the entire family what she had seen and done during our visit.”
