An event to immerse young audience members in the wonders of art as they make their own original creations in the beautifully re-imagined garden behind the Wellington Heritage Museum.

This is truly a remarkable opportunity to hear renowned musicians live and up-close! Dionysus Grammerios (clarinet); Elissa Lee (violin), Angela Park (piano), Sharon Wei (viola); and Darren Sigesmund (trombone) will play a mixed programme of chamber music and solo pieces to awaken the audience to the range of possibilities inherent in each instrument and to inspire them to create their own work of art, continuing with the week’s Water theme.

Children will have the option to submit their piece into the exhibit and sale at The Midtown Brewery, where profits will be donated to the Lake Ontario Waterkeeper organization. Art supplies will be provided to all children who attend the concert.

Parents and children alike are encouraged to tour the garden before and/or afterwards, enjoy the gorgeous sculpture by Quebec sculptor, Philippe Palafray and explore the exhibits inside the museum, which include a collection of strange and wonderful things in the whimsical, “County Curiosities” exhibit and the specially curated display of photographs by early-20th century documentarian and avid photographer, Marsden Kemp.
