WINDSYNC WIND QUINTET
WindSync Wind Quintet opened the 23rd season of Friends of Chamber Music concerts. As always, each performance is accompanied by an outreach event offered within our community. In the morning of Friday, September 21, WindSync presented, in music, the story of “Peter and the Wolf” to students of the Crockett Elementary School in Bryan. Sergei Prokofiev wrote this work in 1936 for a children’s theater in Moscow with the goal to introduce young students to music and to sights and sounds of musical instruments. Each character in the story, Peter, Bird, Duck, Cat, Grandfather, and Wolf, is represented by one or more of the instruments. Friends of Chamber Music greatly appreciates the partnering of Crockett Elementary School and WindSync Wind Quintet for this musical offering and instrumental awakening experience of the young students.
"Crockett Elementary was thrilled for the privilege to have Windsync Wind Quintet come and perform Peter and the Wolf for our staff and students. The group did an excellent job teaching our students about instruments in the wind family and bringing the story to life through music.
Thanks to the Friends of Chamber music for bringing them to our school."
