Education Concert


The annual Education Concert takes place this year in the fall at Monbeck Auditorium in Highland and Valparaiso High School Auditorium. This concert features the Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra performing selected works for a young audience. These concerts target elementary and middle school students. Prior to the concert provide learning materials for the teachers, students and parents. These materials will prepare the younger and older audience members for the concert by giving background information on the composers, the musicians and the music.


TCHAIKOVSKY’S SLEEPING BEAUTY

A Fairy Tale Favorite

 

This concert will feature selections from Russian composer Pytor Ilych Tchaikovsky’s score for the ballet Sleeping Beauty. From Charles Perrault to the Brothers Grimm to Walt Disney, the story of Sleeping Beauty has entertained audiences for centuries. Join us for a timeless tale full of familiar characters and learn how music can tell a story.

 

The concert program includes the famous Sleeping Beauty Waltz, which audience members will recognize from Disney’s Sleeping Beauty.

 

Maestro Kirk Muspratt will lead the concert and engage the audience in a visual presentation about the composer, the music, and the story of Sleeping Beauty. They will also learn about the different instruments used in the orchestra. Docents and study guides will be made available to ticketholder classrooms in advance of the concert upon request. This concert aligns with Indiana Academic Standards for Music and Social Studies.
