This morning Auricolae performing for us at Encuentro, where we sat in Family Circles. TPS parent David Yang is the music director for this trio, and they have been performed on several occasions over the years for our students.
Audience participation and nonspoken means of communication are hallmarks of Auricolae presentations. The trio's goal is "to get young people thinking about different ways to tell a story. You can tell a story without speaking by letting the music speak for itself and hearing how music invokes feelings and thoughts."
Today Auricolae performed "The Ugly Duckling" and "The Matzoh Ball Man." "The Ugly Duckling" can be heard on the trio's website.
