School Shows

Ad Mare is pleased to have presented our Opera Show, arranged by our clarinettist AK Coope, at four secondary schools this past Spring.  The concerts involved costumes, some antics and audience participation.  Each of the five instrumentalists performed an aria arranged to feature each member as a soloist with costumes to match the character ’singing’.  It was a great time for us and as always, our audiences were on their best behavior and appreciative.  Thanks to CMITS for making these shows possible.

Baby!!!

Ad Mare is thrilled to announce the newest ‘member’ of the quintet.  Bassoonist Sophie Dansereau had a baby girl in May.  We are excited to welcome Emma to the Ad Mare family.
