|This was the second time that we participated in the Music & Flower Festival, an annual event held in the Anglican Church on Limburg van Stirumplein in Utrecht.
Because we have been teaching music at home for the past six months to children (as well as adults), we asked several children to play. Fenna (7), Janne (8) and Sanne (8) sang along with us and played music on our home-made single-tone bamboo flutes. We played some ancient melodies that sounded beautiful in this church.
The many flowers in the church stood symbol for the festival's theme: green awareness. We wrote a text about the creation, set to the well-known tune of Father Jacob, especially for this occasion. The children played the song on their bamboo flutes and sang along with us. We practised the canon in two voices on our flutes with the audience singing along. You will find the text at the bottom of the page.
