Musical Adventures in my school

with NAC Orchestra Ensembles

Invite NAC Orchestra musicians along with professionals from the community into your classroom or auditorium for an exciting and entertaining instrumental concert that is sure to create a buzz among your students! Learn about the string, wind, brass, and percussion sections of the NAC Orchestra and ask the musicians about their experience of being part of a professional orchestra. Each ensemble performance also includes interactive elements, allowing you and your students to be directly involved in the learning process.

Throughout the performance, students will:

  • Explore the orchestral instruments featured;
  • Discover a variety of musical genres and styles from the past and present through instrumental demonstrations and storytelling;
  • Learn about elements of music (i.e. duration, pitch, harmony/ texture, dynamics and other expressive controls, timbre, and form);
  • Engage in critical listening through suggested activities contained within the pedagogical guide provided;
  • Take part in a question-and-answer period with the musicians;
  • Become familiar with audience etiquette.
