Recent Kids' Junket

This is our third monthly kids' junket! The idea is to bring instruments and just play freely. There are kids here of all ages and abilities, from toddlers to teens, and even one who plays with a youth orchestra, but when we're here there are no rules and no limitations. As long as the instruments are respected, anything goes. No sound is unwanted and no sound is 'wrong'.

This video is of Rhiannon's "game". Her idea was that somebody would start playing, and others would join in one at a time, until everyone was playing. It's wonderful to witness the children so thoroughly enjoying themselves; so open to exploration of sound and sharing.
