The Musical Discoveries program is designed for our youngest school audiences in grades 1 – 3. Here, they discover a magical world of great music and story enhanced by visual entertainers and plenty of surprises. A comprehensive, curriculum-based Study Guide is available in both official languages for teachers to prepare and deepen their students experience in anticipation of this highly engaging musical event.
HOW THE GIMQUAT FOUND HER SONG
A heart-warming tale about the search for identity and a celebration of music in all of its forms.
We welcome back Platypus Theatre, who brought us Presto Mambo in 2016-17, and one of their most beloved concerts for young audiences, How the Gimquat Found Her Song. Your students will embark on a musical expedition across continents and through centuries to help a discouraged bird discover her unique voice. Students will laugh, chant and sing along with the Gimquat and her wizard guide as they explore musical styles from Gregorian chant to rap. With so much wonderful music to choose from, how can she ever find the song that’s meant for her? More materials and info are available on the Platypus Theatre website.
