The Vinter PULSE recruitment drive has started! PULSE, team Norway, is on fire and is really looking forward to these workshops in February and March!
We have started traveling around Oslo and Bergen with the aim to give possible participants a clearer understanding of what Vinter PULSE is and why they should attend this amazing course.
We have visited more than ten schools and refugee centers in both cities using recruiting tools such as body percussion, team building activities and many more energetic South African dances to give children a mild taste of what they can expect if they take part in Vinter PULSE. The great news is that we currently have over 30 participants on board already! Hopefully more will come as we continue the drive.
The Vinter PULSE course will be held in Oslo from 19 to 23 February and in Bergen from 26 February to 2 March 2018. Each course will hopefully have more than 50 children between the ages of 8 to 18 years old, also including those who do not have any previous musical experience.
This year, Vinter Pulse will be even more exciting with more energetic activities and more fun instruments for the participants who have not played any musical instruments before. This will bring joy and great memories to both Vinter Pulse staff and participants. Also, this year, Norges Musikkorps Forbund (The Norwegian band Federation) is celebrating 100 years and the participants at the Vinter PULSE course in Oslo will be part of this celebration. We are sure it will give them, and us, lots of motivation and joy as we fill up the Opera House in Oslo with energetic South African and Norwegian music.
Will we see you there?
