Join hundreds of students from Salem and beyond at Willamette University’s Smith Auditorium to experience an educational concert – just for youth! The Oregon Symphony orchestra gives students a memorable musical experience by combining the expansive emotional impact of classical music with historical and social concepts that relate to their lives and learning today.
Reservations are required.
10 & 11:30 am
Smith Auditorium, Willamette University
Norman Huynh, conductor
Pam Mahon, narrator
Benjamin Britten’s composition takes us all on an epic tour of the instruments of the orchestra, with some of the catchiest and most colorful music ever composed. This piece is a great way to get to know the individual components of the orchestra, and it introduces a wide range of musical elements in an engaging way. Additional selections on this program will illustrate the various “musical colors” of each section.
A complimentary teacher’s guide will be available in December. Check back soon for details on ordering tickets for the 2020 concert.
