A trip to the Orchestra

This week we had the opportunity to visit Stetson University's School of Music, and watch an Orchestra class rehearse. As the students arrived, the conductor reviewed the various instruments with us. He talked about their appearance in size and shape, how they are made, the sounds they make, the way they are held, etc... The children were able to ask questions, to touch the instruments, and describe the sounds they thought the different instruments made. He also discussed with us the logistics of an orchestra, like the seats, the seating placement of the different parts, etc... We had a fun time, and really enjoyed it.
