Young People's: Music Around the Globe

About This Concert:

This concert is recommended for grades 1-3
This buoyant program will build a bridge for students from familiar tunes to music that highlights one rich musical culture after another, such as Norwegian composer Grieg’s Morning Mood, Aleppo Songs by Syrian-American composer Kareem Roustom, Romanian dances by Bartók, Chinese and Mexican folksongs and more.

  • Minnesota Orchestra
  • Yue Bao, conductor
  • Nita Qiu, piano

Fun Facts:

  • Syrian-American composer Kareem Roustom says an open mind is always the best way to confront a new piece of music, like walking through a museum with lots of different kinds of art from many different artists.
  • For many classical music giants—like Antonín Dvořák, Frédéric Chopin and Aaron Copland—folk music from their childhood is at the very heart of their work as composers.
  • In February of 2019, Nita Qiu won first place in the Young People’s Symphony Concert Association (YPSCA) Concerto Competition, giving her the chance to play with the Minnesota Orchestra on this concert.

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.
