Young People's: Stories in Music
  • Minnesota Orchestra
  • Akiko Fujimoto, conductor

Recommended for elementary-age students
Some composers tell stories in music with fascinating results—painting musical pictures of people, places and whatever they see around them.

Fun Facts:

  • Orchestra Hall will come alive with the sounds of a bee buzzing and swooping in Rimsky-Korsakov’s beloved Flight of the Bumblebee, and with the sounds of the mighty Mississippi flowing in works by Kevin Puts and Michael Daugherty.
  • Students will also discover how composers create a new story to go with familiar music—as Peter Schickele (aka P.D.Q. Bach) did with Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony.
  • Principal Tuba Steven Campbell and star piccolo player Roma Duncan also team up for Kling’s The Elephant and the Fly, a most unusual piccolo-tuba pairing.

Minnesota Orchestra Young People’s Concerts are for schools, homeschools and families looking for an outstanding arts experience that is both educational and engaging. All orders must have at least one child (ages 1 to 17) and at least one accompanying adult.
