THE ORCHESTRA AT THE THEATRE
I’VE HEARD THAT BEFORE! Did you know that some of the most famous classical music written for the Orchestra comes from other art forms? Join the Utah Symphony and Conductor Conner Gray Covington as we explore famous tunes from opera, theater, ballet, musical theater and film. We will discuss the importance of the orchestra to these other art forms and how certain music elements (timbre, tempo, dynamics, and instrumentation) help to tell the various stories. We promise that your students will love watching these iconic pieces come to life.
