Fiddlesticks Family Concerts: What Makes Music?
Saturday, October 30th 2010 at 11:15 a.m. at the Heinz Hall for the Performing Arts
Lawrence Loh, conductor; Katy Shackleton Williams, vocalist. Melody, rhythm and harmony make music. Like an architect designs a building, composers create music with these essential building blocks. Watch a musical skyscraper take shape with Edvard Grieg’s Morning Mood, Strauss’ Radetzky March and music from Stravinsky’s The Firebird. Beginning at 10:00am before the concert, children may meet PSO musicians, learn about stories and dances in the music you’re about to hear.
