Young People's: Rhythm Moves Me

About This Concert:

This education concert is recommended for grades 3-6
No doubt about it: music makes us want to move—and music’s rhythm is at the core of our urge to march, swing and sway.

Fun Facts:

  • Strauss’ exuberant Radetzky March is a brilliant example of the way 2/4-time calls us to march, while the swirling Waltz of the Flowers from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker shows the very different power of 3/4-time in pulling us toward movement.
  • Additional highlights include the famous rhythmic motif of the second movement of Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony, Steve Reich’s unique Clapping Music, performed here by two Minnesota Orchestra percussionists with claves, and the show-stopping Danzon No. 2 by Marquez.

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.

Curriculum materials will be posted approximately six weeks before the concert. Sign up for a homeschool workshop for this performance »
