Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra
Tall Tales & Long Tails, designed by ICO Music Director Matthew Kraemer, features 20 ICO musicians, a narrator, and Prokofiev’s timeless Peter & the Wolf. Included are lesson plans and curriculum for teachers. Tall Tales & Long Tails teaches the connection between English language arts and music. Authors and composers are both storytellers, but whereas an author uses words, a composer uses notes. Students will create word banks to describe the story and music. The ICO proposes to present this program at IPS #61 in conjunction with Any Given Child Indy. The ICO also will present the program at IPS #99 if funds permit.
