Encounter: From Silence to Symphony

Encounter: From Silence to Symphony


From the Melbourne Symphony, this wonderful Web site provides a great interactive way to learn about the symphony orchestra. There are audio and video clips covering instruments, the act of conducting, musical themes, music history, arranging and more. Students will enjoy the "90 Minutes Circling the Earth (Hymn to Freedom)" that was commissioned to aid students and their families in exploring individual instruments. Clicking on a graphic of a symphony orchestra shows the individual instruments and the sound they produce.
