Share an unforgettable concert experience with your students this Spring as the HPO embarks on a musical journey through time. Composer-in-Residence Abigail Richardson-Schulte is your guide as we learn about how chamber music and instruments have evolved over centuries with the influence of composers and folk traditions from around the world. We’ll hear everything from music influenced by the stunning natural sights of modern-day Japan to the cultural impact of the Russian Revolution, venturing back to the music entertaining Europe’s 17th Century royalty. Learn about orchestral composers working today including Reena Esmail, whose work blends Western styles with the traditions of India’s Hindustani music, and Dai Fujikura, who draws inspiration from the natural beauty of his hometown Osaka, Japan. From familiar melodies to exciting new works, this concert is the perfect way to share musical experiences with your class in school or online.
