Elementary school children learn about music by becoming one with the orchestra
This music education program aimed at elementary school children, developed by New York"s Carnegie Hall, was implemented in Japan last year for the first time. About 670 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.
