Presented by Dr Roberta McKay & Elmer Brenner
The Regina Symphony Orchestra is thrilled to present a video performance of “The Crow’s Prophecy” as part of our 2020-21 RSO in School program! This is the story of how, RSO principal oboe player Tamsin Johnson accidently swallows her reed and is turned into a crow. She then meets a variety of musical characters that help her discover her love for music in a Wizard of Oz-like quest to be transformed back into a human. “The Crow’s Prophecy” shows how music can tell stories, express ideas, and share emotions.
This 40-minute performance is interactive, fun, and tailored to the Saskatchewan arts education learning outcomes for grades 1-6.
A Teachers’ Guide accompanies the video performance of “The Crow’s Prophecy” providing guided listening, historical information, lesson plans, and activities related to each piece in the performance. The Teachers’ Guide provides flexible lesson plans that can easily delivered in-person, in a social distanced classroom, and through remote learning .
Thank you to Dr Roberta McKay and Mr Elmer Brenner for their support of this project. To learn more about how to provide financial support our programs, contact Megan McCormick, RSO Development.
