Music Makes the World Go ‘Round

Music Makes the World Go ‘Round provides participatory concerts to upper elementary students in surrounding school districts with the goal of creating interest in school arts programs as students approach middle school.

This program is designed to break down the barrier between the audience and the performer while at the same time teaching audience etiquette skills. Music Makes the World Go ‘Round also touches on the global nature of music as a universal language.

A small ensemble entertains students by performing examples of classical music standards from each of the four major musical periods. Students glean information about the symphony orchestra, musical eras, and how musical instruments make their individual sounds. The program concludes with an interactive Q&A session with the musicians.
