The Orchestra as Ecosystem

May 13, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

TRWA is pleased to offer a special interactive presentation for children (ages 7-10) who will discover the connectivity of living parts in a salt marsh ecosystem, as well as among musical parts in a piece of music.

The program begins with three members of the New Bedford Symphony Orchestra (NBSO) presenting a narrated 40 minute musical performance which brings the ecosystem to life. NBSO ‘s renowned  Director of Education, Terry Wolkowicz , will then engage participants in a 20 minute interactive lesson using a salt marsh model. Children will be introduced to real life salt marsh disruptions, such as the introduction of a new road, new house or restaurant and uncover creative solutions to address each. Several other hands-on science based activities will be available for children to explore.

The NBSO has conducted this program and others on a larger scale in hundreds of classrooms throughout the SouthCoast. To learn more, visit Learning in Concert – New Bedford Symphony Orchestra (nbsymphony.org)
