Instrument Petting Zoo:
An instrument “Petting Zoo” and demonstration will follow the performance. Children will be able handle and play orchestral instruments as guided by members of Chameleon, and will be encouraged to touch, blow, pluck, bow, and strike.
About Chameleon's Education Program:
Our programs are designed to actively connect music with
our world, our lives and our emotions, rather than simply
introducing kids to Mozart, Beethoven and the classical historical
context. We challenge them to find something personal in the
music - how it makes them feel - rather than simply tell them
how or when it was written - and connect them to the process
of creating and enjoying music.
The interactive performances include three (one
public and two school) hour-long concerts along with instrument
demonstrations along with a series of in-class workshops for Boston Public School students in grades 3-5.
