  • Why Music ?

    “When a child learns by experience that music forges direct links between self and world, self-expression becomes more fluent; the music helps interpret ‘who I am’.” -"Growing up Complete”, the report of the National Commission on Music Education

Bach Encounters for Children – this weekend

This Saturday, March 10, from 10 to 11 am at the Lake Wales Public Library, your child has the opportunity to experience Bach’s music in a whole new way!

Dr. Gabriel Statom will introduce children ages 5 – 15 to early music through storytelling, demonstration, and participation.  When I talked to Mark, one of the directors, he explained that the children even get the opportunity to write thier own music and hear it being played on the harpsichord.

I have attended several of these Bach Encounters for Children, and it is well worth the time to attend.  Call 678-4004 for directions to the library.  FREE admission!

Also be aware that the Bach Festival of Central Florida is presenting a series of events next week.  These are full concerts for all ages and are held in 3 locations in Polk County.
