Family Fun at the Instituto Cervantes

Spanish Wiggleworms Presented by Old Town School of Folk Music

miércoles 22 de octubre de 2014, 11:21h

The Old Town School of Folk Music's celebrated early childhood music program comes to the Instituto Cervantes! A free drop-in interactive music experience exploring the Spanish language for children ages 6 months to 4 years and their families.

In this unique program, Wiggleworms teachers lead grownups and children in musical play with traditional and original songs while accompanying the class on acoustic guitar, autoharp or ukulele. Children sing, dance, learn finger plays and story songs, and explore rhythm instruments especially designed for little hands. Early childhood is the perfect time for exposing children to these significant experiences with the language of music. Throughout the Wiggleworms program, young children and their families enjoy musical time together and develop a lifelong love for making music.

La Gallina Submarina: The Underwater Hen
A fantastical odyssey based on a musical tale...

Marina Bollaín is behind the development and production of all her company's shows. Leaving her career as a soprano and opera stage director on the backburner, in recent years Bollaín has focused on musical theater for children with the help of her partner Pablo Navarro.
"La Gallina Submarina" is a musical tale that tells the story of Marcelina, a poor hen who doesn't know how to dive but who lives in a pond filled with swans, frogs and ducks. Desperate to learn how to get beneath the water, she begins a long journey in search of a crab who can teach her how to swim.
Marina Bollaín narrates the show and also performs as soprano and player of castanets, while Pablo Navarro plays the double bass, guitar and percussion. Together they turn the tale of Marcelina into a beautiful musical story.
