Enchant your students with this newly updated version of the classic program. Featuring footage of musicians in performance, with close-ups of individual instruments, the program provides a splendid complement to Benjamin Britten's composition of the same name. The work highlights the four instrument families in the orchestra--woodwinds, brass, percussion, and strings--and emphasizes the unique characteristics of instruments within each group. Perfect for students who are interested in joining the orchestra but uncertain about which instrument to play, the presentation exposes them to the distinct sounds of several instruments and the specific roles they play in an orchestra. The vibrant visuals and spirited score make an excellent introductory program.
