Because of their tailcoats, the musicians in the orchestra somewhat resemble penguins, especially when one looks at them with the eyes of children. For the fifth time, the actor Pavel Liška will be examining the world of orchestral musicians and their music. And naturally, there will be a curious and enthusiastic audience of children. Together, they have already discovered how different various kinds of music sound, what a conductor is needed for, and why one does not talk at concerts. But they have also been able to experience what it is like to conduct an orchestra, to sing “Proč bychom se netěšili” (“Let’s Rejoice and Be Merry” from The Bartered Bride) accompanied by an orchestra, or to create the newest music together with the musicians of the Philharmonic. You are invited to a brand new, fun, and educational programme by Alice Nellis for young schoolchildren and for parents with children!
