 Hudson Valley Philharmonic Residency Programs

 

Teaching artists work in classrooms to prepare students to successfully hear the marvelous pieces and thus feel the joy and revelation that makes people lifelong lovers of classical music. In the classroom, students are involved in musical activities that engage them in the artistic issues of each piece.

 

We also offer teachers workshops conducted by Juilliard teaching artists which will enable educators to take an active role in the process of drawing students into music and demonstrate ways they can use musical exploration to enhance other subjects they teach. A study guide & CD will be provided to educators.

 

The in-school assembly program will bring a small HVP ensemble to the school. This performance will reinforce the classroom activities emphasizing the theme that the full orchestral program will utilize in the concert hall performance.


Pick a Quintet - choose String, Woodwind, Brass or the Families Quintet (one member of each orchestral family) -HVP trained musicians/teaching artists will present a 50-minute program in your school. Each quintet program includes several short musical selections, which serve to illustrate the musician's stories and highlight basic musical concepts.


Peter & the Wolf
-Russian composer, Serge Prokofiev, hoped that through this musical fable young listeners would learn to recognize the sounds of most of the orchestral instruments. Since its debut in 1936 it has become one of the best-loved compositions for children. The HVP Woodwind Quintet and narrator will perform this age-old favorite in your school.


Big & Little - The double bass (big) and violin (little) will talk to your students and transport them on a fascinating exploration of big and little, loud and soft, high and low, up and down. This program offers opportunities to help develop your students listening- skills, an expanded vocabulary and an ability to interpret musical sounds and expressions.
