This summer, “Ensemble Transience: Composition & improvisation—Encore” presents a workshop for families, inviting young children and their parents to experience the joy of music. The programme consists of two parts, the first workshop “Toy Reborn” guides participants to turn recycled toys into music instruments. This workshop does not only fosters children’s creativity but also allows them to learn about the importance of waste reduction and sustainability. In the second workshop, through a series of lively and fun activities, local musicians Joyce Cheung and Kelvin Lau encourage parents and children to understand more about jazz music. Participants will also have the chance to make music with the DIY instruments they make at “Toy Reborn”.

Date: 14 August, 2021
Session I: 10:00-12:30: “Toy Reborn” Workshop
Session II: 14:00-15:00: Music Appreciation Workshop

Target: Children aged 6-10 years old; each participant must be accompanied by a guardian.

Our project organizes four sessions of Jazz Appreciation Workshop, aiming to provide diverse points of entry for the public to learn more about jazz music and break down the stereotype of jazz being confined in concert halls or bars.

This workshop is part of “Ensemble Transience: Composition & Improvisation—Encore”, financially supported by the Arts Capacity Development Funding Scheme of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.
