Celtic Colours In the Schools is a performance-based presentation for students and their teachers. Running 50 minutes in length, the program brings professional artists to the school that are part of the current year’s Celtic Colours International Festival lineup to share their Celtic culture through music. This includes both local artists as well as those from other countries and cultures. These bands are young, lively and fun!

The presentations are an inspiring way to celebrate an important part of Cape Breton Island’s cultural tapestry, and they are an excellent segue for classroom discussion.

This program is sponsored by TD Bank Group.

Roots in the Room is a new program that brings professional artists into music classes (predominately Grade 9 Explore Music classes). Over the course of the school year, working closely with the music teachers, Celtic Colours coordinates a series of classroom visits from local songwriters, composers, and industry professionals working in the Roots Traditional Genre. These artists share their personal stories, musical style, and knowledge with the students.

There is limited availability for these programs.

Please contact Yvette Rogers, Outreach Coordinator, to book a presentation for your school.
