This Music Workshop was for children with special needs. The goals were to promote inclusion and human rights of children with special needs, to demonstrate real abilities of children with disabilities, to encourage their creative spirit, sensitize public and promote inclusion and society without prejudice. There were around 70 and children present with parents and carers.
Musicians were from all groups of instruments in the orchestra, strings, woodwinds, brass and percussions. They performed several works, they chat with children, explain to them what are the instruments, the groups of instruments, show them and let them handle instruments and also let them try to play instruments.
Musicians explained to the children what is orchestra, what is symphonic music, how they play in orchestra. Through play they showed the children how the instruments functions.
Most children were from the several homes for children with special needs, the other children were from schools with the aim to promote inclusion of children with special need with their peers. Besides making new creative ideas with children, it was important to encourage and create new social values.
