Oorkaan to stage award-winning concert "Glimpse" for toddlers  
     Oorkaan from the Netherlands will perform its award-winning concert for toddlers, "Glimpse", in February next year. The arts group won "Best Music Production of the Year" and "Best Small Ensemble" at the Young Audiences Music Awards 2015.
     "Glimpse" is suitable for audiences aged 2 and above. This poetic concert will invite children into a colourful dream-like world, inspiring their wide-open imaginations with live music and rhythms that interact with graphic illustrations. Various patterns will fill the theatre through live projection, while continually changing the background for the performers and the audience. Integrating light and visuals in an extraordinary way, the performance maintains an exemplary balance between the music, the performance's graphic elements and the interaction with the audience.

Aiming to provide every child with the opportunity to experience the power of live music, Oorkaan produces many types of live classical performances from around the world.
