We are always on the look out for new collaborations so it was fantastic to stumble across this brilliant book in 2017 and we now have the rights from the publisher to give live performances of the book with narration and live music. The original book features a button on each page that when pressed gives a small snippet of Vivaldi’s famous music and we’ll be replacing that with a live performance of excerpts from the Four Seasons. This will be accompanied by the projection of the the beautiful illustrations.
It promises to be a really interactive event that introduces children to Vivaldi’s fantastic music in an engaging way.
There will be group workshops to work with Jess on an exciting craft activity and also a musical workshop led by Chris Parsons creating a thunderstorm body percussion piece to tie in with the seasonal theme. This promises to be a unique event for all children of primary school age and an engaging, interactive way to hear live classical music. The whole workshop including the live performance lasts for around 90 minutes.
We are already visiting a number of schools in 2018 and further performances planned at Wicken Fen (9th June), Benslow Music (29th July), Stapleford Granary (27th October)
