Take your band, orchestra or mariachi students on a free-admission field trip to experience the Symphony’s first-ever performances specifically devoted to a middle school audience. Join us at Trinity University's Laurie Auditorium as we delve into the complexities of a beloved work of 20th century music, Hindemith’s Symphonic Metamorphosis of Themes by Carl Maria von Weber. TEKS-aligned content presented in the concerts will touch on the foundations of music learning and the relevance of orchestral music to history, culture and the world.
Concert logo fair use artwork includes Metamorphosis III by M.C. Escher.
