On Friday, May 2, 2014 a group of young piano students between the ages of 7-11 played at the Chateau Renoir Retirement Living Center in SW Calgary. This idea came from a young boy by the name of Conrad, who had asked his teacher to play at this special venue. So, with this help of his sister, Clara, and his friend Emma and Elena, the four children prepared a set of music to play for these seniors.
Below as an exclusive interview Imagine Music Inc. did with Conrad.
