Young People's: Olympic Inspiration
  • Minnesota Orchestra
  • Akiko Fujimoto, conductor

Recommended for elementary-age students
Experience Minnesota's top athletes of the concert stage.

Just as top athletes at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Seoul will inspire the world with their feats, Orchestra musicians will draw “wow” responses in this concert of Olympic-inspired works, showcasing connections between winter sports and core elements of music.

Fun Facts:

  • Articulation and texture will receive special focus, as students explore staccato with Vivaldi’s Winter and legato in Waldteufel’s Skaters’ Waltz, and compare the textures of two lush Dvořák works, the solo-voiced Cello Concerto, performed by FRIENDS competition winner Brannon Cho, and the full-orchestra New World Symphony—much like comparing the individual performance in the luge event to the finely-tuned team effort in hockey.
  • Also notable: John Williams’ exciting Olympic Fanfare and Theme, composed for the 1984 Olympics, and a surprise birthday salute to a conductor of Olympic proportions.
