We opened our concert with a performance of the exciting 1st movement of Ligeti's "6 Bagatelles". It is quick and funny, the perfect way to grab the attention of a young student. We also performed other movements of this work, part of the Nielsen quintet, and Malcolm Arnold's recognizable "Three Shanties". Each piece had an interactive activity to highlight an important feature of each piece, and we had SO much fun performing the concert.
We are looking forward to a restful Saturday to prepare for a busy week of teaching in more schools and for our performance at the Nairobi Music Society.
