Workshop Visit to Bronx Charter School for the Arts

We had a great visit to the Bronx Charter School for the Arts as part of this years Workshop. 4th and 5th graders had a great first visit from the members of Metropolis Ensemble. The kids had a chance to hear how their compositions are sounding as we engaged in a discussion about how write for the instruments. They asked awesome questions of the musicians and were left feeling very motivated to continue their work! We listened to each piece played and then had discussions about strengths and weaknesses. The topics covered everything from orchestration, consonance & dissonance, harmony, instrumental ranges to dynamics, articulations, form, special techniques and much more! The musicians will return again on June 18th for the public concert of student compositions. Please help us fund this event by making a donation on our Indiegogo page here.
