On May 31st, the Sistema Saint John Children's Orchestra performed in front of a sold out audience at the Imperial Theatre in Saint John as part of the 2012 Originals awards show celebrating the best of Saint John's artistic talent. The orchestra performed in front of a large screen showing silent snippets of Hemmings House's "Sistema Revolution" while audience members filtered into the theatre to enjoy the show. When the show's director, Judith Mackin ( came backstage to welcome the children and asked the kids how they were feeling, several responded: "we're famous!" PHOTOS are compliments of Sebastien Benoit
