Hudson Valley Philharmonic ~ Young People's Concerts at The Bardavon ~ Two Shows!

Classical Evolution

Exploring the evolution of music from the 17th century to the 21st

Hudson Valley Philharmonic

  • Thursday April 20 – 10:30am at UPAC
  • SNOW DATE: Friday April 21
  • Grades: 3 – 6
  • Running-time: approximately 1 hour

Our goal is to enrich the lives of children by exposing them to beautiful music. This original, interactive concert; the teacher’s study guide; and hands-on residency activities will engage your students through creative exploration and active musical participation. Developing your students’ natural musical competence will assist them in becoming successful hearers, and awaken their interest in the many ways music plays out in school learning and life.

The repertoire will include:
RAVEL  – LA MÈRE L’OYE:  III.  “Laideronnette”
JOAN TOWER – Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman

Plus: A solo performance by the winner of the Virtuoso in Progress Competition

Before attending the concert we strongly recommend participating in Classroom to Concert, a program designed to give your students the ultimate musical experience. Call Kay Churchill to arrange a visit to your school at 845-473-5288 ext 106.

Teaching artist, Katie Kresek, will work in classrooms to prepare students to successfully hear the marvelous pieces and thus feel the joy and revelation that makes people lifelong lovers of classical music. In the classroom, students are involved in musical activities that engage them in the artistic issues of each piece. Katie will work with up to 32 students per session and up to 4 sessions per day.
