Spokane Symphony Special: Link Up – The Orchestra Moves
Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox
Thursday, April 27 — 7 p.m.
JORGE LUIS UZCÁTEGUI, CONDUCTOR
By any definition, music moves. Melody, rhythm, and harmony all change, shift, and develop. When an orchestra plays for us, we may notice more than one kind of movement. On the outside, we can hear sounds move as the musicians change their pitches, rhythms, and dynamics. We can see the musicians’ bodies move as they play. On the inside, we may feel our emotions moving and changing in response to the music we hear. Sometimes music might even create a sense of physical movement as sounds become heavier or lighter, rise up or tumble down. Through the Link Up repertoire, hands-on activities, and a culminating interactive performance with a professional orchestra, we will discover how the orchestra moves.
The Spokane Symphony presents Link Up — The Orchestra Moves, a concert conducted by Jorge Luis Uzcátegui, and featuring a Master of Ceremonies, guest singers and approximately 900 area students in grades 3 through 5. The program, developed by the Weill Music Institute at Carnegie Hall, is designed to pair orchestras with students in grades 3 to 5 to explore orchestral repertoire through a hands-on music curriculum. Participating students and the symphony will perform together in concert with the orchestra.
