Education/Outreach

FAMILY CONCERTS

Since the beginning the New Phil has presented family programming. Growing from one concert a year to three, New Phil Music Director Ronald Knudsen and our in house narrators, music educator Kathryn Denney and community outreach advocate Dawn Dreisbach have put together a unique format for these programs. The concerts last approximately 1 hour. The music for them is most often a student related work – narrated piece or child soloist(s) and then the remainder of the program is based on a piece that the orchestra is then currently preparing for performance in a subscription concert. The piece, or part of it, is presented in excerpts with a dialogue from one of the narrators about what the kids are hearing, intermingled with clapping of the rhythms they are going to hear, marching to a brass tune, talking about dynamics, colors, instruments, etc.

These concerts give children an opportunity to hear “real live music” in a way that is accessible and fun. Our Family Concerts are always followed by our Instrument Petting Zoo where children of all ages are able to meet and try the instruments of the orchestra.

The New Philharmonia Orchestra Family Concerts this season are sponsored by a generous gift from The Village Bank.
