The Cyprus Symphony Orchestra collaborates with music pedagogue Christina Charalambidou to present the symphonic version of the musical story “Kiki in America” in five unique performances! The protagonist of the story is an adventurous chicklet named Kiki, which will come to life through storytelling, projected illustrations and live music.
Kiki makes a journey in America which starts from San Francisco, passes through the Grand Canyon and ends in New York City - the “Big Apple”! During her trip, Kiki will discover music by American and European composers inspired by the natural beauty of America, melodies of Native Americans and Afroamericans, Latin music and Jazz. Moreover, the work “New York Suite” by Cypriot composer Tasos Stylianou that has been specially commissioned for this programme by the CySO Foundation, will embody the sounds of New York!
These family - educational concerts include interactive musical activities between the musicians, the music educators and the children. A brief workshop will follow where the children will have the opportunity to try some of the instruments of the orchestra.
The main goal of the concerts and workshops is to promote musical exposition and education of children from the early years of their life.Specifically, they aim to introduce children to classical and jazz music, the instruments of the symphony orchestra and cultivate their musicality in creative ways. The children will have the opportunity to experience music through emotional expression, movement, language, the use of imagination and creation of their own drawings. The philosophy of the educational family concerts derives from the idea that “Creative adults come from creative children, and only a creative society can change the world creatively” (E. Barkin).
