In honor of Carnaval this year the Evanston Escola de Samba is
having a big celebration. In addition to music and dancing, there
will be crafts, face painting, dance and drumming lessons.
Wind-generated sounds are the focus as Bienen School
musicians demonstrate the sometimes unexpected possibilities of
applying air to a blade of grass, kazoo, harmonica, slide whistle,
trombone, garden hose, flute, seashell, oboe reed, pan pipe and
other objects. The program will be held at Pick-Staiger.
The exhibit features the illustrations of W. W. Denslow, a
Chicago resident whose famous illustrations helped to inspire the
design of the classic 1939 MGM film starring Judy Garland. The
bright and colorful exhibit provides a variety of learning
opportunities and hands-on activities within a three-dimensional
representation of Denslow's distinctive illustrations.
Discover how sounds make music, and how music makes you feel,
with activities like making melodies on bolt- and wrench-a-phones,
using soft sculpture pegs to make a music box, blowing air over a
reed, moving musical notes on a staff, beating percussion
instruments, and creating an artistic masterpiece that reflects how
music makes you feel
