Molly & the owl
June 2, 2018 @ 2:30 am - 5:30 am
Molly and the Owl is a jazz piece for young children. It combines a spoken story with an original jazz score to introduce children to the basic elements of the music. The piece centres on the story of a young girl called Molly, her strange meeting with a saxophone playing owl, and subsequent adventures in a town called ‘Jazzville’.
An original score performed by a live jazz group accompanies the story telling. The aim is to use the story as a way of engaging the children’s interest in the music, a device which has worked well in classical music, perhaps most notably with Prokoviev’s Peter and the Wolf.
