On Thursday June 2nd a small version of our music group had the honor of providing some music for a poetry reading to celebrate the International Day of Happiness in the context of the Festival de la Poésie de Montréal. Four local poets read poems by themselves as well as other poets featured in the anthology called Happiness – The Delight Tree. Our esteemed guests were Michel Pleau, Jacques Ouellet, Hélène Lépine (who read for Jean Desy), and Dominique Gaucher (who read for Nora Atalla). Two of the editors of the anthology traveled from New York to host the event. Thank you Bhikshuni Weisbrot and Elizabeth Lara from the United Nations Society of Writers for coming to Montréal! Merci aux poètes qui ont créé une atmosphère vraiment spéciale et unique. L’agencement entre les poèmes et la musique était remarquablement sans faille. Belles vibrations!
