Programs

Storytelling Oboes

Children’s program: An educational/outreach concert designed for children from ages 6 to 13. Based on the fable of the Cricket and the Ant, children learn about the fundamental elements of music (tempo, pitch and dynamics) through active listening and interaction with the performers.

All Ages program: A concert based on music inspired by poems, folktales, folk songs, myths and fables from all over the world. These stories deal with life, love, and allegory.
