L-Investigaturi tal-Mużika series lures children into a world of orchestral music
The Malta Philharmonic Orchestra has just launched an edutainment series that will follow two young inquisitive investigators as they seek to discover orchestral music through a number of missions assigned to them by ‘the expert’.
These 15-minute episodes – titled L-Investigaturi tal-Mużika – are intended to awaken youngsters’ curiosity to venture into the world of music and will cover a range of subjects including composers, instruments, techniques, and genres among others.
These topics are explored by the two determined investigators – Allegra and Strauss – as they venture out on their mission to get to the bottom of each subject, sharing all the exciting information they discover.
In the first episode, which will stream online on Thursday, June 10, Allegra and Strauss delve into Charles Camilleri, unearthing clues to his musical background as he went on to become one of Malta’s foremost composers with more than 300 works to his credit.
This series forms part of the MPO’s continuous efforts to bring music closer to younger audiences, and to continue spreading the joy of music to as many people as possible – the orchestra recently reached 5.2m unique followers.
Presented in collaboration with the Ministry for Education, the project is being distributed to all primary schools around Malta and Gozo, and will air on MPO’s digital platforms. Although primarily targeted towards children aged 7-12, L-Investigaturi tal-Mużika promises to be a fun, heart-warming watch for all the family.
