1. I can actively engage in creating music by singing, body percussion, conducting.
2. I can take the various roles of listener, performer, conductor, and I can experience several models of collaboration.
3. I can develop an understanding of historical, personal, cultural, collaborative forces that shape this Russian repertoire, and see how the principles apply to American music as well.
4. I can make artistic choices based on newly learned skills.
5. I can appreciate small units (beats) and large forms (phrase, measure, verse/chorus) and recognize rhythmic pattern.
Discover teamwork in action.  Experience how performers, composers and audiences work together.  Oleg Kruglyakov, balalaika virtuoso, and Terry Boyarsky, masterful pianist, offer an introduction to classical music and Russian folk music through the balalaika, a traditional Russian 3-stringed instrument. Listeners will be captivated by exuberant music, energized by dynamic rhythms, moved by beautiful melodies.  Learn how the balalaika came onto the concert stage from humble peasant origins in Old Russia.  The audience becomes an essential part of the concert, challenged by inquiry-based predicaments and collaborating on stage using Russian percussion instruments.
We are a touring ensemble based in Ohio. We prefer block booking since we are traveling such a distance to be with your students. If, by any chance, you need to cancel we will need a month's advance notice to re-schedule.
