Our trip to the Symphony!

On Wednesday, the third grade classes were lucky enough to attend the Lexington Symphony Orchestra's program, Orchestrating Kids Through the Classics.  We learned about music dating back to medieval times, through the renaissance, baroque, classical, and romantic periods- we even heard some more contemporary music at the end of the concert!

Below are videos of the pieces we heard- although they are not the actual performances from yesterday's field trip :)

Plainsong Chant

Recorder Consort

Bach - Overture No. 3 in D Major

Haydn - Symphony 94, 2nd movement ("Surprise Symphony")

Mozart - Violin Concerto no 5 in A

Beethoven - Symphony No 5, 1st Movement

Tchaikovsky - Symphony  No 4, 3rd Movement

Tchaikovsky - Symphony No 4, 4th Movement

Stravinsky - Rite of Spring

John Williams - Star Wars Theme (you can see the orchestra about one minute into the video)
