Culture Days with GSO at River Run Centre
One day my grandfather took me to a place in Guelph called the River Run Centre, and this is what happened: we were allowed to get dressed up in any costume we wanted. I liked so many costumes, I wanted to try them all!
It was fun pretending to be an actor.
The lady at the piano taught us to sing “la la la”, and later we sang along with the whole orchestra!
Then I got to go on the stage and speak in the microphone. The sound man waved at me.
The man in charge of the lights showed me what to do.
He showed me how he uses the sound board to make everything sound just right.
Then he let me press all the buttons I wanted. I made fog come onto the stage.
I am listening carefully, so I know what to do next. Here we sing our “la la la” with the musicians.
I got to touch the big bass and listen to its sound.
I also got to play the big drums.
The cellist showed me how to play his instrument.
I felt the sounds with my hands.
The last instrument I got to play was a cello my size.
I had a great time pretending I was an actor and a musician!
