El Sistema Aeolian Expands
It was just a little over one year ago that The Aeolian took on a new facility. Bishop Cronyn Memorial Place is a former Anglican Church located at 442 William St. in London Ontario. Built in 1873, this designated Historic Site is a perfect facility for our program. The Church, Chapel and adjoining three story complex offers us ample performance and classroom space.
The participants in our program love this facility and often come early for their classes so that they can “just hang out”. We are building a massive library, computer lab and have many ideas to implement that will offer our participants one of the best music programs around.
Last year, we launched two other programs in this facility. Pride Mens Chorus London is a choir open to men of all backgrounds and ages. Rebelheart Collective is a new conductorless ensemble designed to change access to classical music.
We are excited about our future and how we can use music to foster community!
