2021 Young People's Concert - Bach to the Future!

Program description

Imagine it: You take your seat. The audience quiets. The orchestra tunes. The Maestro lifts his baton. And suddenly- GREAT SCOTT!- a stranger takes the stage! Millie Second, a great inventor from another time has landed herself in the modern day and she’s not quite sure how she got here, where she came from, or how to get home. To top it all off, her time machine, The Chord Explorer, won’t start and her instruction manual is missing a few key pages.

Only the musical minds of our maestro, musicians, and audience can help refuel the broken machine and return our fearless inventor to her home era. But, the journey won’t be without some tuneful twists and turns. From the Renaissance to the Roaring 20’s, from the space rush to the gold rush, this melodic adventure will have you asking not “Where will we go next?” but “When?!”

Specially designed for young audiences, this concert experience introduces students to three Central Florida performing arts organizations – Orlando Philharmonic musicians are joined onstage by performers from the Orlando Ballet and Opera Orlando. This concert has been designed to provide participants with an integrated curriculum experience carefully aligned with the State of Florida’s Next Generation Sunshine State Standards for Fine Arts, Social Studies and English Language Arts. Students and teachers receive a guidebook with pre and post-concert activities and practice musical skills such as performance, active listening, observation, and reflection. The OPO has adapted our concert preparation materials to a digital format for use in school and in home learning settings again this year.
