On Friday, 29 September, we held a celebration at Paul Eluard elementary school in Persan (just north of Paris) to kick off the newest phase of our project.

The participating four- and five-year-olds and their parents gathered at 17.00, and the children were formally presented with their violins.

For the youngsters, it was a joyous first encounter with the instrument, and we were incredibly fortunate to have violinists Amandine Beyer and Yardani Torres Maiani join us. These two great artists guided the students’ first steps with talent and kindness, and their down-to-earth approach delighted the children and made for a magical evening.
