Mr. Fröhlich,


the organ-builder

„Mr. Fröhlich, the organ builder“ - an organ educational concert program for children from 5 years

Oops! There is a big group of children and a church organist playing the church organ? What has happened to Mr. Fröhlich now? He has been called to look at all the tiny and all the big pipes of the church organ. Well: Let's introduce the „Queen of the instruments“ to the kids!

The concept of


„Mr. Fröhlich, the organ-builder“

The educational organ concert program „Mr. Fröhlich, the organ-builder“ educates children from 5 years and families about the organ instrument in a playful, interactive and holistic form. Mr. Fröhlich, the slightly scatter-brained organ builder in a blue overall (acted by Friedhelm Bruns) is looking at the organ together with the children. He educates them, why there „are so many pianos“ (the manuals), why the organists couldn’t fly with so many buttons and stops (the organ stops) and why the „Queen of the instruments“ has got a motor like a car.

Together with the congregation organist the children listen to a varied program of high-quality organ music. The pieces get chosen before. Specific information about the organ (e.g. history, construction history, special organ stops, architecture, etc.) can be integrated into the concert concept.

The length of the concert varies individually between 30 minutes (min.) and 60 minutes (max.).

Materials

Upon request, I could offer you some further materials for lessons. There have been teachers at schools in the past
who developed and organised complete units with these materials for a church organ concert with „Mr. Fröhlich, the organ builder“.
