Our 6th Grade Band students joined others from Portland and beyond at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall last week for an Oregon Symphony concert performed just for them. The entire orchestra, along with associate conductors and narrators, gave young listeners a memorable musical experience by combining the expansive emotions of classical music with historical and social concepts that relate to their lives today. The 6th Grade Band experienced engaging music from Stravinsky, Tchaikovsky, Mozart, John Williams and more. The concert wrapped up with a live performance of the Star Wars theme. This was a unique opportunity for students to experience the arts firsthand, while learning about music.
