2018/19 Young People’s Concert

Stories in Music

Wednesday, May 1, 2019, 9:30 & 11 am
Norman Huynh, conductor

This program will capture the imaginations of our school-aged audiences, as we present music written to tell stories through orchestral music. How did John Williams capture the adventures of “Peter Pan” through his music? Students will learn how composers tell a story through melody, rhythm, dynamics, and orchestration

A complimentary teacher’s guide will be available in December. You can also request a trained volunteer to visit your class and preview the concert – see the order form for details.

For more information, contact Monica Hayes, education & community programs director.
