YPC 2015 is both educational and entertaining

Travis Rapoza is an NBSO violinist who performs with the NBSO trio that performs in the schools during the fall and performed with the orchestra for the Young People's Concert.

More than 3,500 students from all across South Coast and Rhode Island recently attended the Young People’s Concert by the New Bedford Symphony Orchestra. These concerts were the culmination of a year-long exploration of contrast in classical music, photography, two-voice poetry, literature and grammar. Throughout the concert, the students’ photographs, poetry and musical performances were featured on a large screen suspended above the orchestra.

Maestro David MacKenzie conducted the orchestra in a program that demonstrated contrast in number, motion and tone using pieces composed by Beethoven, Bernstein, Brahms and Dvorak.

”The concert was spectacular," Patty Richard, Sippican School music teacher, said. "Every minute was engaging, and every listening goal was clear.”

There was an added third concert for all third-grade students from the New Bedford Public Schools. This concert was funded by grants from the New Bedford Education Foundation and the New Bedford Local Cultural Council.

"We had an incredible opportunity to partner closely with the New Bedford elementary schools this year. Over the course of three encounters with our musicians and myself, these students were able to explore the concept of contrast across the arts and academics," NBSO Education Director Terry Wolkowicz said. "The children could demonstrate their understanding of contrast through many different means using many different symbol systems. For example, at the Parker School in New Bedford, I was amazed at the high level of engagement, creativity, focus and achievement of these students as they created musical performance, photographs and writing examples that demonstrated contrast.”

Next year, the NBSO’s education program “Learning in Concert” will explore the concept of adaptations in classical music and biology with over 60 elementary schools across the area.

Be a Ceiling Supporter!

Be A Ceiling Supporter!

We had to purchase a new acoustic shell ceiling this year at a cost of $45,000. This expense is outside our normal operating budget, so we've created a special "Be a Ceiling Supporter" campaign to raise funds for the purchase. You can buy a portion of the ceiling for us and join the donors who are helping ensure the NBSO sounds its very best. We have more than 700 square feet to go, so please help us today! Donate here.
