How the Gimquat Found Her Song introduces kids to musical genres through time

The focus is on kids and introducing them to several musical genres at the Timmins Symphony Orchestra’s next concert, the Saturday after next.

Ottawa-based Platypus Theatre is bringing its production of “How the Gimquat Found Her Song” to perform with the orchestra.

TSO director Josh Wood says it’s about a mythical creature who can’t remember how to sing — or what her song is.

“There’s a magician and he takes her back through time to different periods in history, and you get to hear the different music from those,” Wood outlines.

It ranges from a Gregorian chant to jazz and rap. Listen to the audio link below to some of the titles of songs you might recognize.

Wood says he’s hoping for a lot of young kids and their adults.  It’s even being performed at a family-friendly time.

“Usually our concerts are at eight o’clock. We wanted to bump it up to make it a little more accessible for families. It’s going to be April 1st, 6:00pm at the auditorium at Thériault.”

Tickets are 40 dollars for adults and 15 for anyone under the age of 30. They’re on sale at the Timmins Museum.
