Young People’s Concert: Scheherazade

At a Glance

This concert is recommended for grades 3-6.

Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade, a treasure trove of vivid orchestration and imagery, is a brilliant example of how composers use music to tell stories. Students will enjoy seeing how the music’s undulating rhythms, dramatic cymbal crashes and soulful instrumental solos inspire dancers from Black Label Movement to create thrilling new stories onstage. Also programmed are Rimsky-Korsakov’s dazzling Flight of the Bumblebee and new works that will prompt students to reach into their imaginations and create their own stories, based on music they’re hearing for the first time.
