Concerts, music workshops, music games and many other attractions – as every year, the Sinfonia Varsovia Orchestra prepares to entertain its youngest listeners. Children’s Day at Grochowska Street will take place on 4 June in the Orchestra’s home at 272 Grochowska Street. The celebrations will also feature a concert by Aida, known to children through the song “Mucha w mucholocie” [Fly in a Flyplane].
Children’s Day at Grochowska Street will start early, at 10 in the morning, with many workshops for everyone, from pre-schoolers to school kids. Participants will experience just what it is like to work in a music ensemble by playing specially prepared mini instruments. They will also create pieces of music made up of street sounds and will discover the secrets of pantomime. There will also be beatbox workshops for the more adventurous.
At the same time yet another edition of the music competition for the youngest children – Happy Microphone for Pre-schoolers. All day long, previously registered groups of pre-schoolers will present their music skills to a professional jury made up of, among others, musicians of Sinfonia Varsovia. When everything’s over, there will not only be prizes for the winners, but all participants and their parents will receive an extraordinary souvenir – all performances will be recorded and released on a CD.
The fun will conclude with a concert by Aida – a singer known to both children and parents through the song “Mucha w mucholocie” [Fly in a Flyplane]. Aida Kosojan-Przybysz is an artist of Armenian origin. She composes music and writes lyrics to songs and rhymed fairy tales, which she herself performs. Apart from songs for children she has also recorded a number of solo albums of music based on Georgian and Armenian motifs.
Throughout the day, little music lovers can have souvenir pictures taken at the photo booth, get their faces painted and watch how gigantic soap bubbles are made. For those with a sweet tooth there will be cotton candy and workshops on making fondant figurines. Children’s Day at Grochowska Street starts at ten in the morning and lasts until four in the afternoon.
Children’s Day at Grochowska Street is a joint initiative of 13. Warsaw cultural institutions: Children’s Week.
