Giving Tuesday, November 28 is a global day of charitable giving. Giving Tuesday is meant to counter the commercialism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday by directing our focus back to gratitude for the things that matter most to us.
We hope one of those things is the NOVA Chamber Music Series. As you consider the ways you can express your thankfulness on Giving Tuesday, we hope you’ll keep NOVA’s educational series, The NOVA Music Project in mind.
The NOVA Project connects public school children to professional chamber musicians offering them performances and educational insights into the power and beauty of chamber music.
The NOVA Project is an outreach series designed to bring classical chamber music into the lives of children throughout the Wasatch Front.
NOVA Project aims to connect professional chamber musicians with elementary and junior high students with live performance and educational insights into the power and beauty of chamber music.
NOVA Chamber Music Series is proud to present Aspen Winds as its resident NOVA Project Artists. The Aspen Winds comprise professional wind musicians Sally Humphreys (flute), Luca de la Florin (oboe), Amy Gabbitas (clarinet), Anita Miller (horn), and Luke Pfeil (bassoon).
In addition to their outreach program they are also willing to work in smaller groups with your instrumental music students.
The 2017-2018 NOVA Project program features Aspen Winds in the Construction Zone! With a grab bag of musical instrument parts (Is it part of a flute? A clarinet? What IS that?), Aspen Winds will show your students how their instruments work, and how they put music together to create something magical!
