The musicians of Eboracum Baroque will be joined by the author and illustrator, Jess Courtney-Tickle for a performance and two interactive workshops including live music and art and craft activities at The Milton Rooms in Malton.
The story follows a little girl called Isabelle and her dog, Pickle on the adventure of a lifetime across the changing seasons. Alongside the narration of the book and projection of beautiful illustrations you can hear the wonderful music of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons performed on baroque instruments.
Following the performance there will be group workshops:
1) to work with Jess on a simple craft activity, and also
2) an exciting musical workshop led by Chris Parsons creating a thunderstorm body percussion piece to tie in with the seasonal theme.
This promises to be a unique event suitable for children aged 5 – 7 years and an engaging, interactive way for them to hear live classical music. The whole session including the live performance and two workshops will last for around 2 hours.
Eboracum Baroque are a group of young professional musicians specialising in the performance of baroque music. They are passionate about education projects and making baroque music accessible to all ages.
Jess Courtney-Tickle is an illustrator and writer whose book The Story Orchestra was long-listed for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize in 2017.
Copies of the book, which contains a CD of music from The Four Seasons by Vivaldi will be available at the event.
Suitable for Key Stage One Children. Free entry for accompanying adults.
