This year's last edition of workshops for children oragnised by the Polish Society for Contemporary Music, during which the youngest participants will learn, play and improvise in the company of great musicians and unusual books, will be held on 22 and 23 November 2019 in Nowa Ruda.
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 the class leaders. 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 playing with improvisations and books, children will learn various techniques of sound extraction, which expose its color and dynamic values, and will also be able to play drums on their own. The musical guests of the upcoming workshops will be: Izabela Buchowska (cello), Bartosz Smorągiewicz (saxophone) and Jarosław Siwiński (composer). Adventure through improvisation with artists will be led by double-bassist Małgorzata Kołcz.
