It was not a very long trip interms of distance from Surabaya, but the roads to Probolinggo were not very forgiving coz they were really narrow at certain places. The situation was further aggravated by it being Saturday night that we had to travel. There many vehicles on the road with families going on road trips to Surabaya. But we finally arrived in Probolinggo and this is quite a quaint town with a very laid-back pace. Today is Sunday and we are going to have our Music Fiesta and MPA in a "bioskop" which is actually a movie theatre.
We started our event with the MPA students performance first. After the performances, we conducted an activity which is a first considering we were using the Rhythm Gamecards for the first time with these children in Indonesia. We chose to use the note-value cards to do a bit of composition with the children.
After they finished their compositions, there was the phototaking session and as you can see from these pics, every child received a follow up book for their continued piano lessons.
Next item on the programme was the performances from the Music Fiesta participants of which we had two groups of children to perform. The following pic shows Wilson with the first group
and here again with the second group.
The lighting in a "bioskop" is not very camera friendly as you can see that some of these pics are quite dark. Anyway, after Probolinggo it will be back to Jakarta for the next few days.
