Music and Storytelling Workshop at a West Philadelphia Library

Ray Jacinto-1005
In February 2013, bassoonist Ray Jacinto of the Eclipse Wind Trio led a workshop for kids at the Lucien E. Blackwell West Philadelphia Regional Library.  Fifth House Ensemble’s Crystal Hall helped Ray develop the idea, and Chelsea Reisner wrote Ray a mad-lib to accompany a 12-ton solo bassoon piece.  Participants were prompted to give adjectives, verbs and nouns after hearing samples of the Hans Erich Apostel’s Sonatine “Allegro molto ritmico” for unaccompanied bassoon.
