Mister G'sMusical Postcards

Music transcends language and promotes cross-cultural understanding. Throughout his career, Mister G has engaged children around the world. The Musical Postcards project unites children in two different countries through shared movement, art, and song – exchanging messages between communities and blending musical traditions to create audio and video recordings that celebrate the creativity and contributions of young people.

The project will launch at Mister G’s 2018 Halloween Fiesta, which takes place at the Academy of Music Theatre in Northampton, Massachusetts. Children from the Springfield Community Music School along with audience members will take part in an initial recording which will be shared with children at the Foyer Evangelique Universel Orphanage in Croix-des-Bouquets, Haiti. The children in Haiti will then respond by adding their own movement, art, and song to complete the recording, which will be shared in both countries.
