Jazz for Kids, a music education project for children aged 6 to 14, returns to Sibiu for its second edition.

Animated by her love for children and music, pianist Daniela Nicolae plans to introduce children to the wonderful world of jazz music. Her project, based on soundtracks of Disney Classics, is meant to stimulate children’s creativity in an interactive way.

The little ones will get to know the history of jazz and its influence on other music genres, they will actively participate in identifying various musical passages in their favourite Disney movies, and the most daring children will be introduced to traditional African instruments. Every evening of the "Jazz for Kids" project will end with an acoustic act, full of surprises, offered by two pianists, 10 and 12 years of age, winners of the National Music Olympics.

Given that the idea behind the whole project is to encourage the young audience to interact with the artists on stage, the former’s parents and grandparents will also be involved in the show. Therefore, the adults in the audience will be given the chance to recognize passages from well-known jazz songs and thus show forth their knowledge of music.

The "Jazz for Kids" project will be held on Friday, May 19th and Saturday, May 20th 2017, at the Gong Theater, and the ticket price is 5 lei.
