Buildings, Bridges, and the BPO: Our Musical City

$6.00 per ticket
One free chaperone ticket for every 15 purchased

Pre-K-2nd GRADES

Join your BPO as we explore the building blocks of symphonic music. We will look through the lens of some of the most resonant places in our community and introduce students to form and function both in place and music. Just as a builder begins with a foundation upon which a framework is laid, the orchestra will explore musical foundations and the tools used by some of the world's most famous composers, including Beethoven, Mozart, Saint-Saens, Copland, and Stravinsky. Students will discover how music fulfills a purpose (evoking images of a busy, humming zoo or inspiring us to move our feet to a march) just as important structures fulfill their community purpose. Each concert ends with two of our favorite musical constructions: the patriotic song and a dance!

This program aligns with Common Core Standards for ELA and Literacy and NYS Social Studies Standards.
