Young People's: Watch the Orchestra Grow

Recommended for grades 3-6
Where did orchestras come from? What happened as ensembles grew from a handful of string players to today’s powerful body of musicians?

Students will find the answers in this concert—both aurally and visually—as one or two musicians at a time come onstage and reveal how their instruments became key parts of the whole. Discover which changes came with “Papa” Haydn, the “father of the symphony orchestra”; Mozart, who championed the clarinet; and Beethoven, Wagner and Britten, each of whom advanced the orchestra and symphonic music in unique ways.

Sign up for a homeschool workshop for this performance.
