New Voices for Singing Cities – Giocare la musica – Rerun

04/2015 Divertimento Ensemble – IT

Two compositions for not-musician-children and ensemble composed by two Belgian young composers have been premiered in Brussels (Flagey) in May 2014.

Their commissions were based around the theme of PEACE in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the First World War.

The Italian rerun of the two pieces will bring on stage the children that participate in the workshop “Giocare la Musica”. The concert will be included in the 2015 Rondò season.

The compositions encourage children’s spontaneous sense of expressivity. Brought together through song, theater and improvisation the children experiment with different sounds under the watchful accompaniment of seasoned professional instrumentalists.

The works are written in such a way as not to exclude those children who had not acquired sight-reading skills, using simple, legible elements, understood instinctively by all.

The concerts in Milano (IT) will take place on April 19th 2015, at Auditorium Gruppo 24 ORE.
