During Kinderkonzerts, a Christmas-themed concert, the different instrument sections are featured to introduce these young concert-goers to each instrument and the sound it makes alone and in the bigger ensemble. This light-hearted concert encourages students to sing and conduct along with the orchestra. For many students, this is their first experience with an orchestra. The highlight of the concert is when Santa Claus leads the orchestra!
Students will have the opportunity to relate music to society and culture, identify a steady beat in musical performances, distinguish between higher/lower, louder/softer, faster/slower, as well as same/different within a musical passage.
