 The Vivace Heritage Youth Orchestra from Pompano Beach, Florida performs the song Cité du Cap-Haitien, composed by Ulric Pierre-Louis and orchestrated by François Nichol Levy, Septentrional's musical director.

About the Vivace Heritage Youth Orchestra:

"Vivace Heritage Youth Orchestra makes beautiful classical music thanks to the energy and hard work of its creator, Marie Manuel, who currently serves as the group’s program director  and conductor.  With a smile she graciously steers the conversation away from herself to the dedicated group of children ages eight to seventeen.

“We started this summer camp in ’08 with five youngsters,” she says. “In ’09 we had 12 students and this year we had 40.  These children come from a geographic range stretching from Pembroke Pines to Deerfield for eight weeks of training at the Mitchell Moore Annex, 901C NW 10 St.  They’re a multi-cultural group including African Americans, Puerto Ricans, Haitians, Dominicans and Americans..." --- By Phyllis J.

Really proud of the composer (lyrics &music), the late Hulrich Pierre Louis who is from my mother's native city of Acul du Nord. The Vivace Youth Orchestra did a marvelous job.Septentrional music will last forever. It is the true reperesentative of the Haitian culture music: ibo, petro, congo, merengue lente, and also Caribbean (Pachanga, calypso, danzon). Long live to Septen and Cap Haitian!
