Color of Music

Grades 3-6

Tue Nov 29 — Thu Dec 1, 2022

Orchestra Hall

Just as painters use many colors in visual art, composers draw on an immense palette—all four instrument families’ huge range of instrumental colors. Khachaturian’s Sabre Dance calls for large forces, so its hues are different from the brass-and-percussion rule of Copland’s dramatic Fanfare for the Common Man. Different again is Coleridge-Taylor’s use of strings in his dance-like Four Novelletten. This concert will feature YPSCA Young People’s Concerto Competition winner, cellist Dennis Eum, as soloist.

Things to Know

  1. Prepare for the concert with our concert curriculum.
  2. Tickets can be reserved in advance with no payment due until a month before the concert.
  3. Does your school need financial assistance for an upcoming trip to a Young People’s Concert at Orchestra Hall? Request a bus subsidy.
