The Chimpanzees of Happy Town ***SOLD OUT*** at The Old Fire Station
Play, Tue 28 Mar 2017
An educational musical adventure for children 3-7 years old. Music by Paul Rissmann, performed by Ensemble 360 and narrator Polly Ives.
This will be the latest in a series of popular projects which have so much impact on children aged 3-7 years old (Early Years Foundation and Key Stage 1) by engaging them with high-quality musical experiences that can inspire and transform their lives, education, and creativity. With each new commission we learn from audiences, teachers, carers and parents how we can improve the offer to ensure that being involved in one of these ground-breaking projects gets better every year. This year we plan to revisit a piece that was commissioned in 2011, but which Paul and the Ensemble feel could engage a new generation of youngsters even more effectively through the provision of brand-new learning resources.
The Chimpanzees of Happytown won Paul a coveted British Academy of Songwriters, Authors and Composers award in 2012. The judges then were impressed by its capacity to involve children of all ages from diverse backgrounds, and to provide a lasting shared experience for children and their grown-ups. Our ambition to rework “Chimps” as an educational piece comes from a desire to use all the learning from children’s responses to our work over the intervening five years to increase its impact with a new generation of young people, including Sheffield schoolchildren from very diverse backgrounds, many of them in schools where there is currently little or no musical provision.
