Another fun day at EMF Explorers...Today we learned about the Baroque and Classical periods in Western music history. We listened to the story of Haydn's "Farewell" Symphony, listened, and responded to excerpts from each movement through color and drawing.
Orchestra visit: the woodwind family. Campers got to see and hear the flute, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, contra-bassoon, English Horn and piccolo. Back in the classroom students had the chance to touch and hear a flute up close.
Music: Haydn's "Farewell" Symphony
Activities: Singing and movement, playing drums, sticks, drawing in response to music
Musical Concepts: Instrument families, Baroque and Classical periods in Western music history, dynamics, and tempo
See you in the morning!
