‘Muziek Raken’, day six

‘Muziek raken’ (Touching music) is an educational project about music I developed together with Marloes Bloemenkamp. The previous years (here and here) were very successful, so we get to do it again this year. Marloes teaches groups of gifted children in the ages 9-12 from different primary schools in Deventer.
Day six! Time to perform. Nerves raging. The kids are now going to perform there compositions in a venue, on a stage, in front of a live audience. This was also the first time we had microphones and a sound engineer at our disposal. We never had a chance to practice with amplified instruments before, so we hoped for the best…
I’m very happy to say that all three performances and everything else about this day turned out to be a grand succes! And to top it off, the show by Goslink was great too. Entertaining for both kids and adults. And afterwards everybody got to play with Goslink’s instruments and ask questions!
We also had an exhibition with all the work made on day three, complemented with a photo report explaining the whole project.
I’m very pleased with the way this project turned out again this year. So is Marloes Bloemenkamp, the teacher who made this project possible in the first place. Hopefully I’ll do this again next year!
