The Binghamton Philharmonic has collaborated with children’s author Lenora Riegel to publish “Quaver Has a Feeling,” a book dedicated to all who nurture empathy in children. When someone takes the time to help to identify various feelings in a child and to help the child see that everyone has their own feelings, children can respond to all of their feelings in a meaningful/healthy way. Music is one approach to help children understand their variety of feelings. As you read this book, everyone can even play along with Quaver and his facial expressions and feel the music.
The book is designed to be read with live or pre-recorded music. To invite Binghamton Philharmonic musicians to perform “Quaver Has a Feeling” for your classroom or event, please call the box office, (607) 723-3931.
