2016-17 Young People's Concerts
- Minnesota Orchestra
- Roderick Cox, conductor
Recommended for grades 3-6
Discover what makes these melodies so unique and experience the thrill of a live camera feed, giving students an up-close and personal view of our very own Minnesota Orchestra musicians!
Students will investigate five key components to an unforgettable melody: rhythm, mood, communication, repetition, and our favorite, the element of surprise! For example, have you ever noticed that the famous “gallop rhythm” in Rossini’s upbeat William Tell Overture is the exact same rhythm that opens Mozart’s moody Symphony No. 40?
