For many years, Joanna Jordan has had the pleasure of performing before many schools through the Toronto Symphony Education Program, both as a soloist and in duos. She is currently working with the Toronto Symphony Preludes as a duo of Bass and Harp with David Longenecker. Joanna is also avaiable as a soloist.
Here is a brief description of the younger children's program which is suitable for Junior Kindergarten -Grade 6 (there are several other programs available for Grades 7 & 8 and Grades 9-12 ):
When "Harp Vader" comes face to face with "String -Skywalker," it isn't with laser swords in outer space. Their cosmic encounter takes place in concerts with a more exotic instruments- the harp . In addition to the Star Wars parody, the sounds of this instrument will be presented through stories, songs and animal sounds. A musical journey through time around the world will offer both education and lots of laughs.
Participation will be encouraged at several points with some of the younger groups. At the end, things will be summed up with a questions and answer session.
Here are a few PDF sample programs for each age group:
