Young People’s Concert: Philharmonia Fantastique

Program

This concert is recommended for grades 1-3.

Here’s a brand new way to learn about the symphony orchestra: we’ll “fly” through the instruments, even peering inside them, thanks to high-definition video and cutting-edge animation. Guided by a magical sprite, we’ll see violin strings vibrate, brass valves slice the air and drumheads resonate—first separately, and then together, as the orchestra overcomes sectional differences in a spectacular finale that demonstrates “unity from diversity.” Composer and DJ Mason Bates collaborated with a sound designer and an animator to create Philharmonia Fantastique: The Making of the Orchestra, which involves an extraordinary film as well as a live orchestra performance. Extra excitement and focus on the violin comes with a solo performance by Catherine Carson, the talented young winner of YPSCA’s 2020 Concerto Competition.

The film to Philharmonia Fantastique contains flashing, colored animated elements, and there are occasionally abrupt changes in the intensity of visual input. Individuals who are at risk for seizures and/or are susceptible to migraines or motion sickness may want to consider attending another Young People’s Concert. If you would like more information when deciding whether the performance will be a good fit for your group, we encourage you to view the Philharmonia Fantastique trailer or contact Minnesota Orchestra Group Sales at 612.371.5671.
