The entire 6th grade is going to Orchestra Hall to see “Rhythm Moves Me”. Students will be treated to the award winning Minnesota Orchestra performing: Johann Strauss “Radetzky March”, Ludwig van Beethoven “Symphony No. 7 Movement 2” and Arturo Marquez “Danzon No. 2”.
The performance is geared toward students this age and includes the conductor, Akiko Fujimoto, talking about rhythm in music, how it is used in these songs and to impact us as the listener to dance, march, swing, sway and inspire.
