I would just like to express my gratitude for the opportunity extended to us last Saturday by “tour de Fort.”
The afternoon before their concert, Nexus gave a workshop to local percussionists (mainly from the Fort Frances Highlanders Pipe Band). This is part of Nexus’ mandate in partnership with the Canada Council for the Arts and the Ontario Arts Council.
It’s encouraging to be able to take part in exchanges such as these, allowing exposure to such innovative and talented musicians.
On behalf of the Fort Frances Highlanders, I would like to thank “tour de Fort” for their continued efforts on promoting and showcasing the musical arts. Keep up the great work!
P.S. A special thanks to Gilbert Smith (a local aboriginal drummer) for sharing his time and musical talent with the group, as well.
