Youth Concerts: "What is a Melody?" 

Scott Seaton | Conductor

Have you ever wondered what makes a melody so memorable or how a composer creates or gets an idea for a tune? In this fun, interactive concert we explore some of the most famous melodies from the past 300 years.

Tchaikovsky: Pas De Deux
Beethoven: Symphony No. 5, movement 1
Mozart: Bastien and Bastienne, K. 50
Beethoven: Symphony No. 3, movement 1
Mahler: Symphony No. 1, 3rd movement
Bach: Fuge in G minor, "the little"
Elfman: Music from Spiderman

Geared toward students from infants through 8th grade, these concerts are an introduction to the orchestra, encouraging the discovery of the full orchestral experience.
