Music-CornerFamily Night Dinner & Entertainment
Featuring Music Corner Productions Performing Aesop’s Animals

Saturday May 25th – 5:30pm

Music Corner

Music Corner introduces young children to orchestral instruments and Classical music through interactive musical storytelling. Founded in 2007, the group uses instrumental performance to highlight and support the characters and action of stories. This combination closes the gap between performers and audience, making the experience for children as interactive and tangible as possible.

 As a quartet consisting of clarinet, violin, trombone, and percussion, Music Corner functions as a miniature orchestra, giving audiences an up-close experience of all four major orchestral instrument families. For thousands of young children every year, Music Corner has provided a first impression of Classical music as a powerful means of self-expression which they can access for the rest of their lives.

Aesop’s Animals
Few works of literature have bridged more generation gaps than the clever fables of Aesop. This story includes favourites like The Hare and the Tortoise, The Fox and the Crow, and The Lion and the Mouse. For each one, Music Corner involves children directly in the story through games and riddles.
Music for Aesop’s Animals was composed by David Clenman, sessional lecturer of theory, oral skills, and orchestration at the UVic School of Music.
