EDUCATION PROGRAMME: ‘MUSICAL BEASTS!’

MONDAY 13 – FRIDAY 17 JUNE 2022

The Bear and the Piano

Glossop Music Festival, in conjunction with Carrot Productions, will be working with primary schools in the Glossop area on a programme of events based around Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf, and the David Litchfield book, The Bear and the Piano. 

The full programme of educational events will include in-person school visits by musicians in the lead up to the Festival for pre-concert discovery workshops, live zoom sessions with the illustrator and author, David Litchfield, and culminate in a series of schools’ concerts in St James’ Church, Glossop.

The concerts will feature interactive, costumed performances of Peter and the Wolf and a screening of the animated film of The Bear and the Piano, with live accompaniment from an ensemble of professional players. Schools will receive full resource packs, and an opportunity to achieve Arts Award Discovery status.
