OMEA's Soundscapes 2014 and Prologue have many things in common

Did you know that many school performances by Prologue's artists can help you reach goals that are addressed by many OMEA workshops during its conference Soundscapes 2014?

Eric Phillipson, Prologue's new Sales & Partnership Manager, is looking forward to meeting you at the conference and tell you more about the following companies (look for Prologue's table in the Non For Profit section).

Boy, do we have a good suggestion for those interested in OMEA's workshop Getting Boys to Sing

Cadence is a quartet of amazing (and very funny) singers performing a cappella that will make boys want to sing as well.
(Tie-in: Getting Boys to Sing: Strategies for Recruitment, Repertoire and Retention
is one of OMEA's workshop offered on Friday Nov. 7 during Session 2 in Duke of Edinburgh.) 

Ballet Creole
Flashmobs are the best way to engage youths! And for the first time this year, Ballet Creole is offering a flashmob workshop that will allow your students to participate in the big flashmob project planned for the Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games next July.

(Tie-in: OMEA's offering the workshop Flashmob Innovation: Engaging Musical Ideas on Saturday Nov. 8, Session 6 in LCC Salon B.)

Sonic Escape
Renowned Sonic Escape offers an amazing combo of a show for the whole school combined with a workshop for band and orchestra students. 

(Tie-in: We noticed that OMEA is offering From Zero to Sixty-Beginning Band Strategies on Saturday Nov. 8, Session 5 in LCC Salon D.)

Sultans of String
With Sultans of String, your school gets to hear one of the best Canadian bands performing their own songs. Sultans of String has found a way to infuse a folk Canadian sound into a multitude of musical genres. They offer a top-quality workshop to a smaller group combined with their school concert.

(Tie-in: We think those interested in OMEA's workshop Creating with Canadian Composers offered on Saturday Nov. 8, Session 4 in Queen Victoria would enjoy bringing Sultans of String into their school.)

Tribal Vision Dance
Tribal Vision Dance offers a great example of how First Nations link dance and music in both their performance and their workshop.

(Tie-in: We mention this because OMEA offers a workshop about Linking Dance and Music Elements on Friday 
Nov. 7, Session 2 in Queen Victoria)

Canadian Opera Company & Shoestring Opera
The best way to introduce students to opera is by offering them a one-act performance sung in English and adapted to suit their tastes. Two companies in Prologue's roster fit that bill! Canadian Opera Company and Shoestring Opera.

(Tie-in: We noticed OMEA's workshop Operation Opera offered on Saturday Nov. 8, Session 6 in Suite 300.)

TorQ Percussion Quartet
The participants of the many rhythm workshops offered by OMEA might want to bring TorQ Percussion Quartet to their school to show how much fun (and cool) percussion can be... when you've developed your skills. 

Silk Road Music
The participants attending OMEA's guitar-related workshops might want to consider bringing Silk Road Music to their school. Silk Road performances allow students to see a virtuoso guitarist at work and hear how beautifully world music can blend with other genres.
