Harpist Evelyn Huber played two mini-concerts at the Pliening primary school and explained her instrument to the children. A fascinating music lesson.
Pliening – The children of the primary school in Pliening received a completely different music lesson than usual: the harpist Evelyn Huber, who lives in Ottersberg, played a few songs and answered questions about the harp, first for the 1st and 2nd grades, then for the 3rd and 4th grades. And told stories about the individual songs. For example, by a blind composer from Ireland or a flamenco troupe that has a time machine at its disposal.
Pliening: Classroom visit with concert harp
The students were enthusiastic and focused. When have you ever had an internationally known and renowned harpist as a guest? With a large, 40-kilo concert harp? A child wanted to know if it was real gold that glittered on the harp. Yes, it is. How much did such a large harp cost, was another question. A student immediately gave his own estimate: "It must cost 50 million euros!" No, it's not that much, Evelyn Huber replied with a smile.
(By the way: Everything from the region is now also available in our regular Ebersberg newsletter.)
For her, attending primary school was a little journey back to childhood. She herself had attended school, her great-grandfather Melchior Huber had once initiated the Pliening primary school when he was mayor, she says. With her was her grown-up son Constantin, who helped with the set-up and technology for the guest appearance. He, too, was once a primary school pupil in Pliening.
For the somewhat different, wonderful music lessons, it was agreed in advance with the school management that each child would bring two euros. The money will be donated to the Ebersberg Children's Cancer Aid, Evelyn Huber announces.
