The Mighty Winds of Hoff-Barthelson: An Introduction to the Woodwind Family of Instruments for Young Children

7th Annual Children’s Corner Concert featuring the HBMS Woodwind Faculty to be held April 1

Hoff-Barthelson Music School will host a special Children’s Corner Concert, The Mighty Winds of Hoff-Barthelson, on Friday, April 1, 2016, at 6:30 p.m., at the School, 25 School Lane, Scarsdale. The concert, an introduction to the woodwind family of musical instruments for young children, will feature members of the School’s woodwind faculty demonstrating the full range of woodwind instruments – from the recorder and piccolo to the bassoon. Designed to be educational, engaging and fun for children and their families, The Mighty Winds of Hoff-Barthelson will spark the imagination of the whole family through an exploration of the instruments and a sampling of each instrument’s repertoire.

Faculty performers include Elly Ball, recorder; Joseph Piscitelli, flute; Donna Elaine, piccolo; Dorothy Duncan, clarinet and bass clarinet; Janet Grice, bassoon; and Betty Condon Fitzpatrick, oboe. Back by popular demand is guest actor-singer Ron Spivak, who will narrate the story of The Mighty Winds of Hoff-Barthelson and lead the audience in song. Audience participation will be encouraged!

Suitable for ages 5 and up, the concert is free of charge. Stay afterwards for light refreshments and an instrumental “petting zoo” where children are invited to see the instruments up close and ask questions.
