Children’s Concerts: (more info)
Tuesday, July 23 10am-11am Variations on a Theme
A lot of classical composers happened to also be fine pianists. They often liked to play games and figure out how many times one single idea could be expressed without ever boring their audience. (Beethoven found a way to say the same thing 32 times!) We’ll hear some of these variations and then ask our guest pianist to come up with his own.
Tuesday, July 23 11am-12pm Onomatopoeia!
Yes, that is a word. But what does it have to do with music? Join us as we discover how modernists composers like Messian and Copland have used onomatopoeias to create familiar animal sounds. Some might be tuneful, others eerie, or chirpy. Fun sounds nonetheless!
Tuesday, July 30 10am-11am It’s All New Music
Discover creative approaches to composition. New sounds, daring textures, and fiendishly rhythmic motives make for a musical experience you won’t want to miss. Be sure to notice any strange piano-playing techniques. You might be surprised!
Tuesday, July 30 11am-12pm Words With Music
Words with music is a perfect combination. For this concert, we’ll listen to the words and inflections of poetry and discover how music embellishes its meaning. Guided by our teaching artists, we will explore telling playful and other dramatic stories through music.
