Event Type

Students in grades Pre-K through 5 are invited to sign up for a music workshop with Anna Mattix from the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra on Monday, September 26 at 3pm. How do musicians interpret musical compositions to create meaning for an audience? What kind of choices do composers and musicians make to create mood and atmosphere? This class explores how the manipulation of sound and time can create movement in music. Anna presents music that incorporates Greek mythology, popular song, and the famous Dvořák New World Symphony English horn solo that became the spiritual, “Going Home.” Her presentation is interactive and engages students in active listening, movement and musical choices. This presentation helps students learn how to integrate and evaluate information presented through a diverse format.
