An Episcopal Day School | Preschool–Grade 5

Artivate Assembly this Friday, April 5

We are excited to welcome back Artivate, Inc. for a special assembly this Friday, April 5!

8:50-9:35 am for Grades 2-5: The Science of Sound: Music Theory Demystified
Six-string electric cellist and composer Wytold shows students how his background in science and math helps him create exciting new music. By exploring the relationship between the science of waves and musical scales, students learn how basic patterns in the world can create interesting and dynamic music. They use their new knowledge to create a short musical piece together as a group. Workshops offer additional opportunities for hands-on learning and collaborative music creation.

9:40-10:10 am for Preschool-Grade 1: Fireflies, Fairies, & Squids
What kind of sound does a giant squid make? How can you make a stringed instrument sound like a firefly illuminating a cave? Wytold explores these questions and more as he leads students on a journey of storytelling and imagination through instrumental music. Wytold demonstrates how he uses the six-string electric cello and live electronics to score film, dance, and theater productions, and shows how simple sounds can create vivid images and exciting stories in our minds. Students collaborate with Wytold to create a new musical story and adventure together! Workshops provide opportunities for in-depth exploration and story creation.
