This music education program aimed at elementary school children, developed by New York"s Carnegie Hall, was implemented in Japan for the first time at PMF 2013. Children, having learned the music on recorders in classes prior to the concert, will enjoy playing along with the PMF Orchestra, as well as the imagery and narration presented by the MC. It promises to be a truly eye-opening experience for the participating Sapporo City elementary school sixth graders.
