Schedule of Silhouettes Chamber Ensemble

Season 2018/2019

20th of December (Thursday) 2018

From Amadeus – Sincerely

”Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius.
Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius.”

W. A. Mozart

For a second season, the series of concerts ”The music is telling a story” give joy to children of the youngest baby age by opening the pages of ”The colorful book”, diving them into the magical world of ”The music of the forest”. The older children are excited to listen to the performance of the original musical fairy-tale ”Peter and the wolf”. Chamber ensemble ”Silhouettes” and City Mark Art Center are continuing the series of educational concerts directing their next project to the parents and their school-age children, as well as anyone who wants to sink into the rich world of the classical music. The first concert ”FROM AMADEUS – SINCERELY” is dedicated to the genius of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and his personal writing correspondence, with which the musicians wish to get the listeners closer to the composer’s real personality, to the joy and pure energy, that his music brings to the world.
Stage idea: Rashko Mladenov.
For children over 10 years and their parents

Tickets are available at City Mark Art Center. Online tickets reservations at:

The Music of the Forest

A classical concert for the little ones between 0 and 5 years

Tweet of birds, rustling of water, buzzing of bees... These sounds welcome the youngest listeners and their parents in the hall of City Mark Art Center in Sofia. Chamber Ensemble ”Silhouettes” and Nadezhda Kondaklieva (narrator) reveal the secrets of the forest sounds, turning the enchanting forest song into magical music. The musicians will lead you through the whole daytime cycle - from the fresh forest morning, through the afternoon din, the sunset and the beauty of the night until the beginning of the new day, echoed by the wonderful pieces of Schubert, Debussy, Tchaikovsky and others.
”The Music of the Forest” is a classical concert, accompanied by charming stories in rhymes, forest sounds and pictures that complement the experience and immerse children and parents in a fabulous atmosphere.

    "Peter and the Wolf" by Sergei Prokofiev

    A musical fairy tale for children between 4 and 10 years old and their parents

    ”Silhouettes” Chamber Ensemble and Nadezhda Kondaklieva (narrator) present the tale of little Peter who catches the bad wolf and brings him to the zoo. The bad and the good, the courage and friendship are basically the main discussions in the wonderful musical fairy tale of Sergei Prokofiev "Peter and the Wolf", which is still intriguing for the youngest audience. ”Silhouettes” Chamber Ensemble picked the idea for a children's play to introduce this classical masterpiece
    to the young ones, to provoke an interest and respect to the art of music, reminding them that being good is not out-of-date!
