Fifth House Ensemble

On Friday, September 13, at 4:00 pm, Inn at DePauw (Social Center B), Fifth House Ensemble will make a presentation/discussion on their interactive, integrated-arts programs and how they fit transactional/transformative model, and discuss their project they are developing throughout the academic year, culminating in a May 11 performance at DePauw.
On Saturday, September 14, they will present two workshops in the GCPA 1115:

Curriculum-Integration on Stage and in the Classroom (1:30-2:30 PM)
Fifth House Ensemble’s Director of Educational Programming demonstrates live examples of the ensemble’s curriculum-integrated programming. Feel like a kid again as you participate in small and large-group activities, presented in the same way as they have been in classrooms and assemblies throughout the Chicago area and nationwide. We share our philosophy as teaching artists, techniques for engaging students with limited musical backgrounds in composition activities, and practical examples of how to design lessons that create connections between musical concepts and core curricular subjects.

Music Can Tell a Story (2:45-3:45 PM)

Fifth House Ensemble members teach participating musicians to perform their signature OneShot! concert titled Music Can Tell a Story. In this interactive performance, the chamber ensemble uses small and large-group activities to explore the ways that composers create character, setting, and plot through music. Fifth House Ensemble performs this show side-by-side with participating musicians in local public schools.
