On 27 and 28 September 2019, the Municipal Cultural Center in Nowa Ruda (2A Strzelecka St.) will host improvisation workshops for children entitled "Tell me a story". The events are organized by the Polish Society for Contemporary Music.
The workshops are a continuation of a project commenced in 2015. During this year's edition, the classes will take place in two series: in Nowa Ruda, Lower Silesia (27-28 September 2019) and in Skoki, Krajenka and Wągrowiec, Greater Poland (24-26 October 2019). They are intended for groups of 25 children at the age of 3-5 years and for children aged 6-8 years. In total, there will be 12 workshops for preschool and school groups as well as workshops open for children and their guardians.
The main idea of the project is to trigger graphic-inspired improvisations. Children will create their own stories based on picture books. 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. The musical guest of the workshops will be the Trillingen Duo group, composed of: multi-instrumentalist Iwona Jędruch and double bassist Małgorzata Kołcz – workshop coordinator. Adventure through improvisations together with artists will be led by composer and pianist Jarosław Siwiński.
The organizers invite children aged 3-5 and 6-8 to the upcoming classes. The youngest group will learn, play and improvise from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m.; children aged 6-8 years – from 12:00 to 13:30 p.m.
