SYMPHONY IN THE SCHOOLS "PRESERVE THE CORAL REEF!"
A. Project Concept: Preserve the Coral Reef!
Most students have never attended a symphonic concert.
Phase One: Teaching Artists travel to each elementary providing classroom presentations / performances in which musicians play and demonstrate instruments to introduce students to the music.
Phase Two: A concert featuring the orchestra and teaching artists guides students through musical vignettes tied to curriculum standards, eliciting student participation.
B. Curriculum Enhancement
Student workshops on the science of sound, math and musical form, melody and rhythm music bring music to life. This year's project is entitled: "Preserve the Coral Reef!" The project builds upon, and deepens students’ knowledge and understanding of sceintific principles related to the ocean and specifically our Coral Reefs.
This arts-integrated unit, Preserving Our Coral Reef: Teams of Success, guides students through activities that apply observation and science to understand the seating and numbers of instruments in a symphony orchestra which is contrasted to science, technology, engineering, and math are helping to preserve the ‘rainforests’ of the ocean, the coral reefs. Students will learn how light and temperature effect both systems!
Students will participate in building a symphony and will rebuild a dying coral reef after adjusting the temperature, light, and acidity of the water. Students will gain knowledge of both of these intriguing and necessary parts of our world.
SYMPHONY IN THE SCHOOLS "PORGY AND BESS"
Porgy & Bess for Miami-Dade Students: The highlight of the 2018 / 2019 season is the Symphony's production of the greatest of American opera's, the Gershwin's "Porgy and Bess."
This is particularly exciting due to the innovative digital components we are implementing for ‘Porgy and Bess.’ In lieu of a regularly staged backdrop, we use 4D digital video projection mapping technology.
STUDENT IMPACT PLAN “PORGY AND BESS”
MASTER CLASS WITH ‘TOUR-FX’: 4D Digital Video Projection Mapping:
Part A: Master Class for Visual Arts students the day prior to the performance at the Arsht Center Knight Hall. Technicians from Tour-FX will demonstrate ‘behind the scenes’ components of 4D projection technology required for the production.
