The Little Orchestra of The Jagiellonian Fair
The Little Orchestra of The Jagiellonian Fair is a group of the youngest music enthusiasts. They learn and perform traditional tunes from the Lublin region under the guidance of experienced instructors. Rehearsals that run all year round prepare the young musicians to perform at the festival in August.
Anyone who has visited The Jagiellonian Fair at least once knows how much energy and joy comes from traditional music. It invites everyone to play music together, spend time, make new friends, and have fun. We’ve created The Little Orchestra of The Jagiellonian Fair, intending to instil in kids a passion for learning and continuing the musical traditions of the Lublin region. The first edition in 2019 was led by Maciej Filipczuk. From 2020, the Orchestra has been led by Przemysław Łozowski.
The project is addressed to children aged 9+ who own instruments and know the basics of playing.
The project is addressed to children aged 9+ who own instruments and know the basics of playing. The participants learn dance tunes (polkas, obereks, ride tunes), ritual songs (carols, pastorales) and children’s folklore (old songs, leisure activities). They learn to play by year, which brings them closer to the ways in which music used to be passed down from generation to generation, from the master to the student. The Orchestra’s rehearsals also offer the kinds an opportunity to develop their musical sensitivity and to build the habit of playing community music.
