While we wish we could be out in our community sharing music during this difficult time, we want to keep music and learning alive in our city and beyond. Before social distancing became a requirement, we were able to record our Family Concert program with our string quartet to share with you virtually, to watch in the safety of your own home.
Our Columbus Metropolitan Library Series aims to bring free, family-friendly concerts, which link classical music and children’s literature, to our community. We’ll explore opposites in music as we sing, listen, and dance to tunes played by our violinists Eric Kline and Heather Kufchak, violist Brett Allen, and cellist Cora Kuyvenhoven.
Check out our video series below, hosted by our Community Outreach Coordinator Ann Kriewall:
Watch and listen as Ann leads us through story time and our string quartet teach us about the opposites of length (long & short) and mode (major & minor).
Next, Ann and our musicians explore more opposites including tempo (fast & slow) and dynamics (loud & soft).
In our final segment, our musicians demonstrate each of their instruments and share how size (big & small) affects the pitch of what you hear (low & high).
We extend our deepest gratitude to our partners at the Columbus Metropolitan Library, as well as The Siemer Family Foundation and The English Family Foundation for supporting this series.
While their locations are closed, the Columbus Metropolitan Library’s digital library is available 24/7! Your library card gives you access to eBooks, movies, eAudiobooks, magazines, online classes and more at columbuslibrary.org.
