BACK TO SCHOOL WITH RAPALJE!
New live stream on Friday, May 8 at 4:00 PM (CET): www.rapalje.com/stream
Due to the current circumstances, not only education is seriously disrupted. Artists also are going through tough times and need to change their compass. For example, there have already been a large number of online concerts by both national and international musicians and the (online) creativity knows no boundaries. Rapalje wouldn’t be Rapalje if we didn’t come up with something new!
On Friday, May 8th, in preparation of the reopening of Dutch schools, an alternative online lesson will be given from primary school De Westerburcht in Eelde, led by no other than four enthusiastic teachers with an unadulterated Highlander profile.
We have put together a tight curriculum with the following components:
– How do the instruments of Rapalje work and what is, for example, a Low Whistle, Gitouki or accordion?
– How about those costumes: does all of Scotland wear a skirt?
– Geography and history: crash course about Scotland and Ireland
The connecting factor is of course music! The phrase “Let the cobbler stick to his last” applies here. In the curriculum various Rapalje songs are included and applied to the situation of the youngest among us. The dreamer, the doer and the thinker: we’ll conquer you all with our unconventional and quirky range of lessons!
