Features “Bear Wants More”
SymphonyLand final concert (scheduled for March 26 and March 29, 2014) is based on the beloved children’s books of Karma Wilson and Jane Chapman who wrote the “Bear” series. The upcoming concert features a brass trio and “Bear Wants More”. This Canton Symphony Orchestra endorsed performance is sponsored by the Hoover Foundation and is a continued commitment to provide arts education options for young children in the area.
“What makes these arts education sessions so amazing is that our musicians educate the kids how instruments make sounds, then how those sounds make music, and then how the instruments work together to make a song. And they do it in the context of books with which the kids are likely to be familiar. The kids love the subject matter and interactivity,” said Michelle Mullaly, CSO Executive Director.
While each SymphonyLand concert is unique, the entire series is tied together by common music and academic concepts and address Ohio Common Core State Standards in Music, Language Arts, Social Studies and Science.
Performances are open to preschools, public schools, and homeschool groups and are performed at 10:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. on the two days.
For those looking for another educational experience, the CSO will perform a Kinder Concert on April 9, 2014 at 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. This performance brings all of the instrument families together. Children of all ages will enjoy the program
The concerts are held in the Cable Recital Hall of the Cultural Center for the Arts that is located at 1001 Market Avenue North in Canton, Ohio.
