NMU Orchestra Children's Concert
The NMU String Orchestra Children's concert is a yearly series put on by Dr. Barbara Rhyneer. The concert will present classical music aimed at a younger audience. The program includes Romanian Folk Dances by Bela Bartok, movements from Benjamin Britten's Simple Symphony. Scherzo Pizzicato from TChaikovsy's fourth symphony will be conducted by NMU student Victoria Gabrielsen. Dr. Rhyneer explains and illustrates the pieces in a fun and exciting way that teaches children to appreciate music. In the past children have been encouraged to come on stage and interact. We encourage families to attend this great family event. The concert is free of charge.
