New York Philharmonic Strikes a Chord with OLQA’s 3rd Grade

Studying Aaron Copland’s music through a series of class sessions with a visiting teaching artist from the New York Philharmonic, OLQA’s 3rd grade learned about the symphony and the powerful stories told through classical music. The OLQA community was also treated to a special concert by five members of the Philharmonic that inspired gasps and in-seat dancing.

Said one student, who loved the ensemble’s pianist, “That was so cool. I couldn’t even see her fingers, they were moving so fast!” The Philharmonic – and Aaron Copland – have a new set of eager fans. Thank you to Russ and Judy Carson for their support of the Philharmonic in-class program.
