Young People's: The Color of Music

Young People's: The Color of Music

Our 2015-16 Young People's season kicked off this week! We've got some great photos from our first concert, The Color of Music. Special thanks to students from Hilltop Elementary in Inver Grove Heights for letting us photograph their concert experience!

Student from Inver Grove Heights

Students were very good at guessing which instrument didn't belong during the Pop! Goes the Weasel quartets.

Black Label Movement

Black Label Movement performed during Bernstein's Mambo, with a little help from the audience.

The string section displayed or wore blue bandanas; other instrument families were distinguished by different colors.
