Built in 1889 for the World’s Fair, the Eiffel Tower stands in for people across the globe as a symbol of French innovation, creativity and culture. It’s such a potent and valued symbol that just a momentary glimpse of the tower evokes thoughts of Paris, one of the most significant and cosmopolitan cities in the world, particularly in the realm of cultural production. For many, the music of Satie, Debussy, Ravel, Stravinsky and other Parisians, is just as immediately identified and appreciated as quintessentially French as the Eiffel Tower.
The CMC Atlanta Spring Break April in Paris Camp will focus on French music and culture. Students will learn tunes, melodies, stories, rhythmic poetry, and engage in French music-related art. We've designed the program to be the perfect blend of legitimate training and immersion in a rich musical tradition and good old-fashioned fun. Elementary school age students are invited to join us for a full week or come on one or more selected days via the Music School Day Pass. Activities will include private lessons (voice or instrument of choice), singing, drumming, group art and music projects, and ensemble playing with Center faculty, guests and fellow students.
Because we divide by age and skill level, beginners and more experienced students are welcome.
