October, 2021 LIVE Concert CANCELLED
Welcome to the 2021-2022 Florida Orchestra Youth Concerts! TFO has performed Youth Concerts for students in the greater Tampa Bay area for over 50 years, and we are looking forward to another exciting program this fall. TFO Resident Conductor Daniel Black will be back this season to lead students through the concert.
We are calling this year’s concert Great Big World, and it will explore plants, animals and other wonders of our planet. Audiences will venture into various landscapes through pieces such as Jennifer Higdon’s “Teton Range” from All Things Majestic and excerpts from Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony. The orchestra will mimic animals small and large, from bumblebees to elephants, with music by Camille Saint-Saëns and Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. The adventure will end in the water with excerpts from Strauss’ Blue Danube Waltz and Claude Debussy’s La Mer. This guide includes rich musical information, context, and cross-curricular lesson plans. TFO is excited to welcome you and your students back to the concert hall this school year. This Guide has everything you need to help your students explore the repertoire and composers before AND after the Youth Concert.
Thank you to the supervisors from Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas County School Districts who worked side by side with us to create this program, as well as teachers Jennifer Moats (Hillsborough County), Kori Barber and Mindy Simonds (Pasco County), and Christine Marr and Holly Mullenix (Pinellas County) for their amazing work creating this guide to the concert.
