Educational concerts: The Many Faces of the Accordion

The educational concert is intended for elementary school students in first and second grades. During the show, the schoolchildren visit almost the entire world accompanied by the accordion. Together, they will discover the melodies, attributes and cultures of the countries where the accordion is popular.

Vojtěch Szabó will also introduce the accordion to schoolchildren as a full-featured instrument for playing melodies of different genres in unusual ways. He will destroy the traditional belief that the “pull harmonica” is a pub folk music instrument. Especially the electronic accordion can imitate other musical instruments – piano, clarinet, mandolin, guitar or organ. The students will learn that even one accordion player may sound like a band.

Although it is an educational concert, it is also a game, during which the students, thanks to the screening, learn about the attributes of individual countries and they also learn typical melodies.
