Jeunesses Musicales of Canada Pavilion

This is the pavilion of the Jeunesses Musicales of Canada, which will be active during Expo in many ways.

In Cité du Havre, close to the Place d'Accueil entrance to the exhibition and its Expo-Express station, the pavilion of concrete panels has been sponsored by member companies of the Portland Cement Association.

After Expo closes it will be transported to the Jeunesses Musicales permanent camp at Mount Orford, Québec.

The role of the Canadian Jeunesses Musicales in regard to Man and Music includes acting as host to the 21st world congress of the Jeunesses Musicales International Federation, taking place in Montréal from July 16 to July 22 at the height of Expo activity.  The federation represents 25 countries.

The pavilion has a section on music in Canada from 1610, with opportunity to listen to Canadian works and study scores of composers, and a studio where leading musicians direct practice sessions for senior students.

There are also exhibits devoted to systems for the musical education of the young, those of Martenot (France), Orf (Germany), Suzuky (Japan), Kodaly (Hungary) and Ward (Britain); demonstrations of teaching methods used in schools and a history of the progress of the Jeunesses Musicales movement.
