As part of this year’s edition of Katowice Kultura Natura Festival Earth, the NOSPR will host a unique educational project  POCZUJ MUZYKĘ, addressed to deaf children.

The workshop is designed for deaf children aged 3-6 and will be conducted jointly by music therapists and NOSPR musicians.

“POCZUJ MUZYKĘ!” is based on “Feel the Music”, the Mahler Chamber Orchestra’s flagship Education and Outreach project that appeared at the Katowice Kultura Natura Festival in 2016.

Thi unique project opens children with hearing disorders to the world of sounds, encouraging them to discover music on their own terms. The sound, the vibrations, and the sense of touch are the physical components of music received by the deaf. Throughout the interactive workshop, the children will be encouraged to use other senses to experience music, which has so far remained inaudible to them. Moreover, they will be invited by the musicians to participate in the orchestra rehearsal in the NOSPR concert hall, where they will have the opportunity to try playing with the musicians or conduct the orchestra.
