Flutist Kristine Poulsen, cellist Matthew Pierce and I had an AMAZING fun in "Odyssey Outreach," this time for kids at Child Development Center at First Baptist Church on January 22, Wednesday at 12:15pm. In a 30+ min. live performance of selected pieces from Saint-Saens ever popular work, we successfully entertained approx. 40 children of ages 3-5 with corresponding projected images and age-appropriate discussions about music - such as, why the composer did not assign flute as the designated instrument for an elephant, and why this particular elephant in the carnival wanted to dance. (!)
What an AMAZING experience this was for both the audience and performers alike! We had more than 400+ in the audience at this FREE concert preceded by Instrumental Petting Zoo, and all the performers played so beautifully.
