In addition to our performance and recording schedule, the Oswald Goeckeritz Duo is passionate about inspiring and encouraging children to be involved in the arts. We believe the influence of musical creation is a powerful tool, and want to help children discover it’s beauty, inspiration and worth as they use it in their lives. Thus, the Tunes & Tales Trio was created to provide musical education programs for schools as part of Arts in Education. Joined by our friend Julie Aamodt, viola, the Tunes & Tales Trio will perform at Utah schools throughout the 2010 – 2011 school year.
The Oswald Goeckeritz Duo love to perform at the Church History Museum and felt honored to be involved in the Evenings at the Museum series again! We were thrilled to meet with so many audience members afterwards who came to see us perform and have us sign their copy of Chanson. We were overwhelmed and humbled by the many genuine complements about our music and words of appreciation for the thoughts we shared during our performance.
It is amazing how the museum is able to transform the main art gallery to accommodate such a large audience, while keeping the intimate feeling of visiting a friend’s home for a private musical event.
