Jonathan Dods Posted January 16, 2019 Share Posted January 16, 2019 Hello All, I wondered whether I could pick your brains? I've been asked to play a recital specifically for children. Local schools will be invited to bring groups to hear a 45 minute programme/presentation. I played a recital for a group of about 20 children at Christmas. I met them beforehand and showed them the instrument up close and we talked about how it worked. The recital consisted of Christmas music with tunes they might know, and a bit of talking about the organ and the music. It seems to have gone down well! I'd be interested in ideas for repertoire, both individual pieces and longer cycles of pieces or over-arching themes (I have an arrangement of Peter and the Wolf which is a possibility). Any examples of programmes, written notes or Youtube clips, also any ideas about what to say and show between the pieces. I'll almost certainly set up some cameras so they can see me playing more clearly and so they can see inside the instrument. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
