This week, grade five students and their music teachers from the Westman and Parkland regions and into Saskatchewan will come together for a day of creative music making at Orff Children’s Day 2018. This fun-filled and musically enriching event will take place at the School of Music at Brandon University from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Children’s Day, sponsored by the Manitoba Orff Chapter, will feature five excellent clinicians. Under the leadership of these experts, students will take part in various workshops integrating choral singing, recorder, movement, and ensemble playing on drums and Orff instruments. The chosen theme is “Back to the Future – An Intergalactic Exploration”. The day’s activities will culminate in a sharing session presented by all participating students from 3:00-3:30 p.m. All are welcome to attend.
Students were selected to represent their individual schools at this fantastic event. Together with their music teachers, they look forward to taking part in exciting new musical experiences to bring back to their peers.
