CONCERT OF ANDEAN MUSIC

Andes Manta presents their acclaimed stage performance, interweaving the music and folklore of the Andes. This formal concert structure may be presented in either two 40 minute halves or a single one-hour and fifteen minute show. These formats have been presented on major stages throughout the U.S.


The Concert of Andean Music has also been adapted for all school audiences from pre-K through High School and University students.

SCHOOL PERFORMANCE

Andes Manta has developed a series of Arts in Education programs, performing literally hundreds of school concerts each year, and giving countless lecture demonstrations, master musician classes and Panpipe making workshops for children and students of all ages.

LECTURE DEMONSTRATION

ANDES MANTA conducts an informal program designed to expose smaller groups of students (in the classroom) to the musicians and to the instruments. Students interact with ANDES MANTA as the musicians explain and demonstrate each instrument, discuss life in their home country of Ecuador and offer an opportunity to practice speaking Spanish with native speakers. This program involves a demonstration with audience participation, lecture and question-and-answer period. Approximately 45 minutes to one hour.

PANPIPE WORKSHOP

Created as a hands-on learning experience for children and adults alike, the panpipe workshop is a start to finish lesson in creating one's own instrument. Each participant is provided with a kit (requires a materials fee) containing pre-tuned South American bamboo pipes, cording and bamboo struts. The musicians teach the participants how to assemble the panpipes, called pallas, and finish the workshop by teaching all participants how to play a simple traditional Andean song. An excellent choice for students of all ages, and as an extra activity at festivals and arts council events. Approximately one hour long.
