    “Deborah Davis’s powerful, expertly researched, bilingual production “A Musical Taste of Our Canadian  Heritage/Notre patrimoine canadien, une odyssée musicale” is a collaborative performance infused with music, dance, song, and historical narrative reflecting the Canadian experience, past and present. This ninety minute interactive teaching tool not only ignites an interest in our country’s music and history, but cultivates in the audience a feeling of national pride, while potentially creating a whole new generation of theatre goers. It touches the soul and elevates the senses, no matter the age of the audience. It is brilliant! You will not be disappointed!”

    “Deborah Davis’ blockbuster show: A Musical Taste of Our Canadian Heritage/Notre patrimoine canadien, une odyssée musicale has been amazing audiences for the past twelve years. It brings together more than 50 performers, 100 pieces of music and authentic regalia and costumes in a ninety minute odyssey of Canadian music, culture and history. In my own experience, this is not a production you can just sit back and watch passively. It is too moving and uplifting to fail to engage the audience at a personal level. Deborah has created something remarkable and noteworthy. She is a true talent.”

    “Excellent moyen de transmettre l’histoire! Je n’ai pas arrêtée de bouger. Ce fut un spectacle mouvementé, plein de sourires, d’énergie et de richesse qui devrait être vu par tous.  La passion de Mme Davis de la culture et de la musique canadiennes jumelée avec une vision unique du bilinguisme sont transmis à tous les niveaux. Wow!”

    “After spending three action-packed exciting days in Ottawa the students are still rating “Odyssey Showcase/ “A Musical Taste of Our Canadian  Heritage/Notre patrimoine canadien, une odyssée musicale” ” as their most favourite event. What a wonderful way to actually EXPERIENCE Canadian history. To teach through music and theatre is a media seldom used in our educational system. For challenged students such as my own, the show taught them about Canada and their heritage in a dynamic, impressive way. On behalf of the Joliette High School students…….thanks for the memories! Hope to see you again in 2012. Please keep us posted.”
