We’re very proud to have Marcelline in our VCM family and love that her passion/work receives such wonderful coverage. Great article!

“I love what I do for various reasons,” relates Marcelline Moody, a long-time performer, composer, arranger and teacher in Winnipeg. “Mostly because I believe that the classical arts provide beauty and elegance in our lives and no one could say that there is too much of these in the world – quite the contrary – so by introducing kids to ‘classical’ music, dance, art, drama, and encouraging them to make the arts part of their lives, we make the world a better place.”
Moody’s been called “The mother of music in Manitoba” by the Winnipeg Free Press. Having worked for decades in the Winnipeg school system, the teacher has spear-headed large-scale collaborative works involving children from many schools. This diminutive bundle of energy and creativity has touched the lives of tens of thousands of students in Winnipeg.
