Passionate about their educational outreach work,they often present a shorter - 50 minute- version of their programme, to children aged eight and above:a glimpse into the world of classical music through fascinating stories about composers and their works.
"Flautist Klio Blonz together withcellist Rebecca Hepplewhite and pianist Grace Mo, gave the children of the Music Schools of Northern Greece a unique musical educational experience, with the high level and solidity of their performances, the excellent choices of the repertoire and the immediacy of communication. The children learned in an interactive way about the magical world of 18th and 19th century chamber music and had the opportunity to meet classical and romantic composers they had never come into contact with before; they got to know Louise Farrenc and Johann Nepomuk Hummel, exploring aspects of music history unknown to them.
A wonderful educational program that balances between the perfection of the interpretations and the spontaneity of the speech.
Mariana Bozapalidou, Head of Educational Programs, Megaron Concert Hall, Thessaloniki, Greece.
