This entertaining program facilitates students’ knowledge and experience of various families of instruments and “family members” such as the viola, cello, oboe, bassoon, tuba and French horn. Also conveyed are brief histories of the major orchestral instruments, basic elements of music, and much more. Additionally, this program introduces students to the works of Mozart, Handel and Vivaldi – composers whose music conveys universal themes and has transcended the time and culture in which it was created.
