Music on the Hill series plans multisensory, family-friendly performance.
This week, UNB’s Music on the Hill series present a fun collaborative performance piece that combines storytelling, projected animations and live music to create a unique, family-oriented performance. The project is centered on four children’s books published by UNB’s Early Childhood Centre and combines the work of several Fredericton-based artists.
“This performance is very much a partnership,” said Sarah King of the school’s Centre for Musical Arts. “The stories were published by the Early Childhood Center, animators were commissioned to animate two out of the four books, and then there are also four commissioned musical compositions written for violin and percussion.”
Music will be performed by Nadia Francavilla (violin) and Joel Cormier (percussion) while Theatre New Brunswick’s Thomas Morgan Jones reads from each of the four books – Foggy Cat, Baby and Mommy Go Walking, A Lullaby for New Brunswick and Seth Writes a Story.
“It’ll be like story time but with music and art all happening at the same time,” said King.
