Music has a unique power to convey what words often cannot: a state of mind, a feeling, an emotion. This concert will examine different emotional states and the elements of music associated with them. We’ll discover what we already know instinctively: music’s emotional impact is clear and universal.
NY State Guidelines in relation to this concert:

  1. The conductor will interact with the audience throughout the concert asking students to make decisions based on what they hear

  2. Students will have the opportunity to use art materials and resources if teachers choose to submit works of art and poetry for projection during the concert

  3. Students will respond to the pieces of music during the concert as well as any pre/post work teachers choose to do

  4. Students will learn how music is a reflection of culture and our world by gaining understanding of music as its own language
