"WONDERFUL WINDS" — Your youngster’s life-long love of music will begin the moment he or she encounters chamber music in person at Richardson Auditorium in Alexander Hall. Back by popular demand, pianist Orli Shaham will introduce pre-school-aged kids to the joy of live classical music played, in an interactive concert especially created for children age 3 to 6 and their families. You'll meet all the instruments in the woodwind family and see how to make music just by breathing. Internationally renowned concert pianist Orli Shaham is your host, along with special guest woodwind quintet, Windsync in their Princeton debut. Aaron Copland's Hoedown will set your toes tapping and you'll be riveted by the classic musical tale Peter and the Wolf. And, of course, plenty of music by Johann Sebastian Bach, and more.
Orli Shaham is an internationally renowned pianist. She travels all over the world giving concerts and many of today's most important composers have written pieces for her, including Princeton's own Steven Mackey who has written a piece for her. Orli created the Baby Got Bach series in 2010 series because she thought that there weren’t enough opportunities for pre-school aged kids to hear really great live classical music. Baby Got Bach is recognized by parents, media and the music community as a significant force in music education and entertainment for pre-schoolers. The program is in-residence at the 92nd Street Y in New York City, and has been cited in New York Magazine’s “Best of New York” list. Orli has also taken Baby Got Programs on tour all over the country.
Special guests Windsync have been hailed by the Houston Chronicle as “revolutionary chamber musicians.” They are internationally recognized for dramatic and engaging interpretations of classical music. Gold Medalist in the National Fischoff Chamber Music Competition and winner of the Concert Artists Guild Victor Elmaleh International Competition, this dynamic ensemble focuses on building a connection with audiences through adventurous programming and charismatic stage presence. These five virtuoso players perform exclusively from memory and specialize in creative concerts that inspire and entertain audiences of all ages.
