Peter and the wolf, Friday 13 October at 17.30 h in Casa de Cultura by AIS school, free entrance
Each character of this tale is represented by a corresponding instrument in the orchestra: the bird by a flute, the duck by an oboe, the cat by a clarinet playing staccato in a low register, the grandfather by a bassoon, the wolf by three horns, Peter by the string quartet, the shooting of the hunters by the kettle drums and bass drum. Before an orchestral performance it is desirable to show these instruments to the children and to play on them the corresponding leitmotivs. Thereby, the children learn to distinguish the sounds of the instruments during the performance of this tale 
Kindest regards,

Martine Mertens, Councillor International Residents
Patrick de Meirsman, Councillor for International associations and collectives
