Family concert with the Full House Quintet and master story teller, singer and actor Edwin Rutten, ambassaor of Muziek Telt! (Music Counts!). With music you can tell stories, and you can play along.
"We are going to ask you to use your fantasy. We turn things round so that you can see in your head what music is being played and what the story is that I am telling you. If you can come up with the first two lines of a story, I and with me the Full House Quintet will finish the story musically.
We play the music of a few composers that you will fall in love with. We will not go into yawning territory. I hope to see and hear you. And don't forget to take your parents and grandparents along. See you. Edwin Rutten."
The world of Dutch music unites in Muziek telt! (Music counts!), an initiative of Muziek Centrum Nederland, Fonds voor Cultuurparticipatie and Kunstfactor. Over a period of three years, these organisations aim to enrich children's lives with more music, both in schools and outside. You can find more on the background and the ambition of Muziek telt! at www.muziektelt.nl. Here you can also undersign the initiative.
Toekomstmuziek is sponsored by Waternet, Stichting Het Amsterdamsche Fonds and Stichting Ambassadeurs van het Grachtenfestival.
