Melody and Friends is a Childrens programme.


Melody and Friends

Preschool mixed-media music show about Melody, a partially sighted girl with an incredible imagination. Melody and her mum arrive at the Purcell School to see her friend Joe, who plays the marimba. Mum and Melody arrive in the corridor where they can hear the marimba. They find Joe who shows Melody different mallets and demonstrates the sounds they makes and lets Melody have a go. Melody and her mum then hurry to meet Melody's friends who are also going to watch Joe give a recital of Two Movements, composed by Toshimitsu Tanaka. Melody is looking forward to knowing what the music will make her friends think of. The music begins, and Melody's imagination, with the help of animation, gets to work. Mum and Melody then go and meet her friends. The music is played again and with animation we see what the music makes her friends think of.
