Field Trips to the Capitol Theatre

 

PATTERNS: Grade 4-6

Up and down, light and dark, there and back again. Join the WSO at Windsor’s historic Capitol theatre for a musical experience that’s all about patterns. Featuring beloved masterworks and modern Canadian classics, this program explores the ABA format in music and reveals the way that this pattern appears across forms of creative expression. Your students will enhance their active listening skills by getting to know the instrument families and how they use patterning to create beautiful and complex pieces of music. Once your students have learned about ABA, they’ll be seeing it everywhere they go!

BAND FOCUS: Grades 7-12

Many students begin learning instruments in the intermediate grades and want to know more about what their instruments can do. With a special focus on woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments, this program for intermediate and senior students helps budding musicians and music lovers get to know these popular instruments. Though ideal for students learning an instrument, this program has something for everyone, and lights up the Capitol theatre with a sound that is warm, lyrical, and full of feeling.
