Young People's: The Color of Music
  • Minnesota Orchestra
  • Roderick Cox, conductor
  • Black Label Movement

Recommended for grades 3-6
Violin, viola, cello and...timpani? One of these instruments doesn’t belong with the others, but which one—and why?

In this interactive concert, students help our lost musicians find their way home by investigating the musical element “timbre,” or “tone color,” and the four families of instruments. Each family gets a chance to shine as the Orchestra performs excerpts from Grieg’s Peer Gynt, Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man and Bernstein’s West Side Story. The concert also features amazing movers from Black Label Movement and music arranged by local composer Jocelyn Hagen.

A homeschool workshop is available for this performance on Jan 19, 2016 10am. Register today »
