The JdP presents a brand new cushion concert series with Catriona Scott: ‘SoundStories’!
Bring yourself and a cushion to the JdP on a Sunday morning to discover how different instruments tell stories through their sound. Each concert will explore an instrument, and a ‘musical brick’ such as rhythm, melody and harmony. Regular features will include ‘Poetry Piece’, ‘Round and Around’, and ‘Music Now’, as well as opportunities for singing and dancing!
Come to all seven concerts for the full journey, or just drop in for one or two. Join Cat (professional musician and St Hilda’s College alumna), her clarinets and her musical guests, for a fun and exciting musical adventure!
