PROKOFIEV PETER AND THE WOLF STORY:  MASK MAKING PROJECT


WebphotoChethamsPeterWolf5.jpegWith the support of the Helen Foundation, pupils from Shaldon Primary School and Teignmouth Community School Mill Lane took part in a workshop on Monday 13th June led by the artist Cara Roxanne working in partnership with DAISI, arts inspired learning, to create masks relating to the Peter and the Wolf story.  Ten pupils from each school took part in two performances of the work given by Chetham's School of Music Ensemble on Friday 17th June, animating the story with the help of the masks they created.

Local school children attended the afternoon performance.  In the words of a teacher from Shaldon Pre-School:  "our children were completely mesmerised and spellbound at such a fantastic story so perfectly told through the music.  I don't think I have ever seen our children so engrossed in an event."

The review of the evening concert can be found in the archive section of this website under the Programme Heading.

Photos taken at the concert are shown below.
