FAMILY CONCERT - FEBRUARY 25, 2018
One universal element of music is rhythm. Composers and musicians play with elements of musical time, creating patterns of sound and silence that are expressive and exciting. A consistent groove can unite musicians, singers, and audiences in an experience of listening and performing together. Through the Link Up repertoire, hands-on activities, and a culminating interactive performance with a professional orchestra, we will discover how "the orchestra rocks!"
The Santa Cruz Symphony will once again be joined by the Santa Cruz County Youth Symphony, Santa Cruz Ballet Theater, Kuumbwa Jazz Honor Band, Cabrillo Youth Chorus and the Santa Cruz High School Drumline.
Be sure to stay after and attend the "Instrument Petting Zoo" immediately after the concert.
