    Classical Kids Halloween story

    Vinny the Violin loves Halloween but can't decide on a scary costume so decides to make a scary sound instead...

    Sunday May 10th
    The violin is a very important instrument because of its clear sound and beautiful tone, and because it can be played fast and furiously, or more slowly and expressively. We’ll learn about the violin on Sunday and hear a violin sonata by Beethoven, part of a string quartet by Mendelssohn and a violin concerto by Bruch. We’ll also hear a march by Sousa written for a newspaper, and a march by Charles Ives written for a very under-rehearsed orchestra!

    Sunday May 17th
    We'll find out what a nationalist composer is this Sunday and we'll hear music by Bedrich Smetana who celebrated his country with a suite of pieces called the Czechoslovakian dances. We'll also hear music that he wrote for the great river Vltava, and we'll listen to some different types of pianos including a piano forte and a prepared piano.
