Enchant your students with this 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. While the orchestra members in this program do not play along with Britten's composition, they do demonstrate how to handle and play each instrument and show where in the orchestra they belong. Perfect for students who are interested in joining the orchestra but are 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.
