Will the team of donkey, dog, cat, and rooster making music defeat the robbers?
Last Thursday as part of Children University inciative of Vilnius University 8-11 year-old kids at our church had a chance to experience the organ.
After last years event becore climbing to the organ balcony I told the kids the story of Damned brothers (some of you might remember my improvisation on this legend). I saw how fascinated children are by the stories, especially the scary ones.
So this year I chose to do the event not as a regular organ demonstration but as a storytelling improvisation based on the famous fairy tale of Brothers Grimm "The Musicians of Bremen".
Not only the listeners listened to the musician being improvised on the spot but also my dramatisation of the story.
Also I asked them to draw the story and the organ. I made a sound recording and took pictures of drawings and made them into a 29 minute movie.
Although the story is being told in Lithuanian, I hope you'll still appreciate the wonderful drawings of the little ones.
