The Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra will perform an education program for families with children on Sunday, May 7, 2017 at The Marq in Southlake. Associate Conductor Daniel Black will lead the orchestra in the Symphony’s “Musical Math” program, which explores tempo, meter, and more in famous orchestral tunes like “Hoe Down” from Copland’s Rodeo, Pachelbel’s Canon in D, Brahms’s Hungarian Dance No. 5, and others.
“In music, we are always counting,” said Lindsey Branch, the FWSO’s director of education and community programs. “So, we created the “Musical Math” program to show all the ways these two subjects, math and music, are really related and to help students make connections between things they’re learning in the classroom, like fractions, and certain elements of music, like note values or time signatures.”
This performance will take place in the Aria Outdoor Amphitheater at The Marq—located at 285 Shady Oaks Dr. in Southlake, TX, 76092—on Sunday, May 7, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for students and children, and $8 for Apex members. Tickets can be purchased by calling the FWSO Ticket Office at 817-665-6000 or by visiting www.fwsymphony.org.
