KidsAcoustic with Hideki Yamaya
Infants (not yet walking) are welcome for free. Space is limited, so please buy ahead. Seattle Historical Arts for Kids is proud to present our second season of family concerts at Empty Sea Studios, offering a truly unique, up-close musical experience.
The KidsAcoustic series offers real music for grownups, enchanting tunes for kids, and a chance for all the children to try the instruments afterwards! For each concert, teacher and early string performer Shulamit Kleinerman joins forces with a duo partner from a folk or early music tradition.
Joining Shula for the final concert of the season is Portlandâs multi-talented Hideki Yamaya, playing plucked and strummed instruments from lute and five-foot-long theorbo to renaissance and modern guitars to the 18th-century mandolino, the rarely-seen ancestor of to dayâs mandolin. Hideki is a rising star of the West Coast early music scene, performin g recently with ensembles including the Portland Baroque Orchestra. Wit h Shulaâs violin and viola da gamba, the duo plays captivating music of the Renaissance and Baroque eras, plus a touch of traditional music of England, Ireland , and America.
Shulamit Kleinerman first added family house concerts to her offerings for children in 2007, and the audience quickly outgrew her teaching studio. The new space at Empty Sea is still welcoming, relaxed, and intimate enough for kids to scootch right upto the musiciansâ feetâ¦ but now thereâs also room to dance! Shula is passionate about bringing the arts of earlier ages alive for kids. From Mozart operas to baroque minuets to Shakespeare skits to medieval songs, her historical arts workshops connect kids with the sparkle of the past. More information about her performances and classes for kids and adults can be found at shulamitk.net.
