The Moody Musicians
While brainstorming for this program, Alaina and I agreed the main focus should be on how music translates into emotions. What makes a piece of music sound happy, sad, angry, scary, or peaceful? Through careful deliberation with these specific moods in mind we set out to find music that, we feel, fits these categories. However, music can be interpreted differently therefore throughout the concert we encourage the audience to thoughtfully listen and form their own opinion!
We designed this concert to be perfect for ages 5-13 by:
Encouraging the audience to draw throughout
Encouraging participation with prompts and asking for volunteers
Leaving wiggle room for when a member of our young audience feels inclined to tell us all about how their brother's cousin's friend used to play the piano
Picking pieces to play that only last 1-3 minutes
