A newly created arm in Jan 2019, our Homegrown Series debuted its inaugural interactive Concerts for Children in Nov 2019 at the Esplanade Recital Studio.  Together with our experienced animateur Sharon Sum, 5 pairs of piano-violin duos from Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music, bravely welcome-d a hall full of enthusiastic preschool children, bringing them through live musical excerpts from Mozart’s childhood Sonatas for piano and violin amidst specially designed creative activities for the children.

Mozart 36 for preschoolers ages 4-6
Nov ’19

When we listen to music, it can often be very easy to paint a scene in our imagination.  We created this session so children from preschools ages 4-6 could have the opportunity to exercise their sense of imagination within Mozart’s music and to express this through creative writing.  A total of over 160 children, teachers and parents went along on an imaginary ride up a Ferris Wheel with us and created storylines based on what they could see looking out into the distance from the top !

We closed the session with the children crafting their own unique Ferris Wheel carts that were later displayed with the help of our friendly professional musicians-in-training from Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music and our fun animateur Sharon Sum.

Thank you for joining us in getting your creative juices going this morning !

Mozart 36 for preschoolers ages 0-4

Perhaps Mozart is an extremely popular character 😉

In Oct 2019, we found ourselves completely oversubscribed for this pair of interactive Concerts for Children by TTK Homegrown Series, at Esplanade Recital Studio on 1 Nov 2019.  Together with our animateur Sharon Sum, 2 pairs of student duos from Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music brought to live musical excerpts from Mozart’s Sonatas for piano and violin created during his childhood years.  Drawing parallels to characteristics of iconic animals the children are all too familiar with, the live music alongside movement and drawing activities allowed for a rather active and boisterous morning !

Thank you all you pre-schools for joining us and overwhelming us with your enthusiasm !
