Young People’s Concert

February 10, 2017!

Our Young People’s Concert will take place at 10:30am on February 10 at DECC Symphony Hall. We look forward to hosting you and your students for a presentation of:

Musical Stories

Along with your tickets to this concert, you will receive online access to a curriculum that shares stories of the seasons through selections from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, you will hear a tale of triumph in Tchaikovsky’s March Slave, and experience how music can create a feeling of motion in the highly energetic final movement of Beethoven’s 4th Symphony! We will also feature Young Artist Competition Winner, Olivia Skaja, playing Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto in D major! The program is approximately 40 mins in length and will include narration and some additional words from Music Director, Dirk Meyer. This is a full, symphony orchestra—representing all families: winds, brass, percussion and strings. The repertoire for this concert is relevant to all subject matters—history (Turkish oppression), physics (perpetual motion in Beethoven’s 4th Symphony), natural science (seasons), music, of course, and don’t forget the social lessons learned by attending a live performance!
