Music Coach. Children's chamber music online and at home

SPMK

The Association of Polish Chamber Musicians – Kraków Branch, as part of the "Culture on the web" programme of the National Centre for Cultre, has implemented an innovative project "Children's chamber music online and at home" covering about 1100 minutes of recordings of Polish chamber music. Starting from 14 October 2020, the materials will be available in the new con.sol.la mobile application and on the YouTube channel of PWM Edition, which is a partner of the project.

"Children's chamber music online and at home" includes recordings of individual parts of children's instrumental duets published by PWM Edition, enabling ensemble playing at home, remote learning and social isolation. The project consists of over 375 audio and audio-video recordings of duet pieces.

Among them there are compositions by outstanding contemporary composers, such as Hanna Kulenty, Grażyna Bacewicz, Janina Garścia and Romuald Twardowski. For each work, recordings of individual parts were prepared in two different tempos to enable ensemble playing by students of various education levels, and to encourage amateur musicians. Model versions were also prepared for each piece.

The recordings at BBrecords Studio were performed by excellent musicians: Ravel Piano Duo, Anna Maria Staśkiewicz (violin), Joanna Konarzewska (violin), Julia Samojło (piano), Piotr Gach (cello), Michał Panasiuk (cello), Maria Sławek (violin) and Anna Kuk (violin).

Free Improvisation Workshops for Children "Tell me a story"

PTMWFree improvisation workshops for children "Tell me a story", organized by the Polish Society for Contemporary Music, will be held on 15-17 October 2020 in the Culture Centre in Krajenka, the  Eugeniusz Paukszta City and Commune Public Library in Skoki and the Culture Center in Środa Wielkopolska.

This time, the classes will be conducted by vocalist Iza Kowalewska, double bass player Małgorzata Kołcz and composer Jarosław Siwiński. The adventure with improvisation will be guided by actor and director of plays for children, Grzegorz Ociepka. During the classes, children aged 3-5 and 6-8 will learn, play and improvise in the company of their parents, great musicians and amazing books.

The main idea of ​​the project is to trigger graphic-inspired improvisations. Children will create their own stories based on picture books. The improvised fairy tales will be then "translated" into musical language under the guidance of class teachers. Improvisation is the most basic, primary and joyful form of music performance, which is why the workshops combine children's creativity and imagination with books and contemporary music. In addition to improvising and playing with books, children will learn various techniques of producing sound, which expose its color and dynamic values, and will also have a chance to play percussion instruments on their own.

Classes last about 90 minutes with a short break. Participation in the workshops is free – due to the limited number of places prior registration is required.

2nd Sonikalia Sound Festival for Children

Sonikalia

Wytwórnia Zdarzeń Sonokinetycznych [Sonokinetic Event Factory] invites you to the Sonikalia Sound Festival for Children, which will be held on 1-4 October 2020 in Olsztyn and Szczytno.

What are 'Sonikalia'? ... A collection of sound events going on here and there, linked by at least one goal – awakening interest in sounds. The organisers look for this interest primarily among children, but since all (sic!) art recipients should be treated equally and we should avoid "infantilization", the Sonikalia events can also arouse curiosity of adults. The Festival will present various functions of sound as a component of a musical work.

When selecting Sonikalia events, great emphasis is placed on their interactivity. The programme proposals are selected in such a way as to ensure maximum active participation of children in all artistic activities (concerts with the participation of the audience, improvisations, interactive installations and interactive lectures, shows, performances). It is also important to add the element of fun. The festival will feature improvisation workshops for children "Tell me a story", led by Trillingen Duo (Iwona Jędruch and Małgorzata Kołcz), flautist Karina Kusior and composer Jarosław Siwiński.

Admission to all festival events is free!

Full programme is available at: http://sonikalia.pl 

Warsaw | 10th Little Warsaw Autumn

WJ

We celebrate the 10th anniversary of Little Warsaw Autumn on 18-27 September 2020 in unusual circumstances.

Since the beginning of our festival, direct contact with audience has always been central to what we do. We have always prepared events thinking of how to draw children into the world of contemporary music, how to engage them, give a chance to experience the music, ask questions, and improvise. These are obvious fundamentals for all those who work with children and for children. This year, this approach has been put into question, and Little Warsaw Autumn has faced the challenge of featuring online events. We have composed our programme to also allow our audiences to experience live music.

We hope to see you at the Sculpture Park in Królikarnia and the Museum of Warsaw. This year, music at our festival will come to the help of teachers, too. We shall feature gymnastics at our musical performance Musical Olympics by the Kwartludium ensemble, outdoors in the Królikarnia Park. Exhibits at the Museum of Warsaw and the unusual instruments from the Little Instruments collection will merge into Paweł Romańczuk’s Exhibitones. The Museum of Warsaw’s “Siren” cinema will feature a show of riddles, based on the book Basements. Mysteries from under the floor published by Dwie Siostry Editions. Book author Aleksandra Cieślak and composer Edward Sielicki have worked with musicians, sound engineers, and animators to create an extraordinary radio feature opera, with an important role played by sign language. At every moment, you can take a break and pop into the Królikarnia to play (safely, with social distancing and other precautions) table football in sound: this is Michał Silski’s Trambambula, based on the idea of one little Kazik, who has followed Little Warsaw Autumn since its beginnings.

This year, we also meet online: for Kwartludium ensemble’s warmups, a web version of the radio feature opera Basements. Mysteries from under the floor and the Exhibitones concert.

During the workshops, we will talk to children about contemporary music as well as rules and methods of improvisation, illustrating these themes with musical examples. We will conduct exercises and games that will help children absorb the transferred knowledge more easily. We will also show how useful in making music and improvising is ear training, rarely liked in schools, so there will be a lot of listening exercises during the classes. In this project, it is very important to make music together and collaborate in a group, so children will participate in classes with their instruments and will actively improvise under the guidance of the teachers.

Classes will be held online and will only be open to participants and their supervisors. The concert summarizing the work of the workshop participants will take place in September and will be broadcast on the FB profile and the website of the Art Deco Group Music Agency.
