St Petersburg, The Shchedrin Hall

The Adventures of Buratino

Music lesson as part of the series Music Told in Tales of Sand for children aged 3-8

Sand animation is one of the most stunning and beautiful types of applied art and animation. This genre style was conceived by the Canadian animator Caroline Leaf. Sand animation is created “live” before the audience: thin layers of sand are applied on glass and shown on a screen using a projector.
Following the concert the children will have the opportunity to make sand drawings under the guidance of sand-artist Marina Sosnina and learn the “secret” of such an unusual concert through their own experience.

The lesson will be led by Olga Piccolo, a music historian and member of the International Association of Music Psychologists.
