WES Arts, a program initiated by the Macdonough School-Family-Community Partnership Team, provides opportunities for the school's staff and families to experience concerts and shows at Wesleyan's Center for the Fine Arts.
The first WES Arts program this year will send two Macdonough families to a concert by Le Vent du Nord at Wesleyan's Crowell Concert Hall on Friday, September 24th.
"Since its inception in August 2002, Le Vent du Nord have been enjoying rocketing success. They have received several prestigious awards, including a Juno. The band is now one of the most-loved Quebec folk outfits throughout the world. The group’s current line-up consists of singers / multi-instrumentalists Nicolas Boulerice, Simon Beaudry, Olivier Demers, and Réjean Brunet. Some of their songs come from traditional folk repertoire, while others are original compositions. On stage, these four friends achieve peaks of happiness they eagerly share with any and all audiences. Le Vend du Nord know how to deliver music that will move any crowd – to their feet and in their hearts! This is undoubtedly music of the here and now."
