A Window into the World of an Orchestra brought the children closer to music.


The second Sunday in April was a marathon theatre day for many of the children in Estonia’s shelters and substitute homes. In the morning, they watched the educational concert performance Window into the World of Orchestras (Aken orkestrimaailma), at the Estonia Theatre, and in the evening, Little Gavroche (Väikest Gavroche), at the NUKU Theatre. As always, they took a peek into life backstage at both theatres.

A Window into the World of an Orchestra gave the children the opportunity to see how an orchestra lives from the inside. The children were able to lean how an orchestra functions and how each instrument sounds on its own. Sounds are like our emotions – very different and very important.

The performance was exciting to follow for children between the ages of 5 and 18. Musical guide Georg Udukübar helped those children, who had already spent time in basic school learning about the instruments found in an orchestra, to remember what they had learnt. This made it much easier for those who had never learnt about instruments to get to know them now.

Since the primary focus was on instruments and the unique sounds that they make, the orchestra was raised higher than it would otherwise be. This allowed those seated in the orchestra section to better see what was taking place in the orchestra pit.

The Fund also gave the families the gift of a Music Encyclopaedia, which will help children to easily find answers to questions related to music and orchestras in the future.
