CréaSon is the brain child of Sylvain Grenier, a musician with boundless imagination for whom the vast choice of existing instruments was not enough. Out of hockey sticks, car wheels, cans, pans and golf equipment, he made "xylo-hockeys", "cans o' fun", "pans o' fun" and "golfuns" to create new sounds. CréaSon's environmentally focused approach to percussion instruments encourages children to explore their creativity and musicality through found objects and repurposed materials. Together we can save the planet!
The students loved the performance! The performers were high energy and the show was interactive. Janice Sulatyeki, Teacher, Baythorn Public School

Being ecological is so logical! On the road since 1991, and with more than 2,000 performances in various venues, festivals and schools, CréaSon's Eco-Logical Show builds on young people's willingness to reinvent the world. CréaSon unites children of all ages in a big "environmusical" party! The audience will accompany the musicians throughout the show and volunteers will join the artists at the end to jam with them on their recycled instruments! Available in both French and English.
