Dear Educators and Parents: We hope that you will use this child’s introduction to the instruments of the orchestra to prepare children for the Symphony Street concert. Listen to the Symphony Street CD with your child or students before attending the concert. Talk about the different types of sounds you hear as the various instruments play. Select age-appropriate activity sheets from the ones included in this guide to facilitate further discussion about and interest in the orchestra. A set of activity sheets are included in the Teacher’s packet and are available on the ASO website at www.atlantasymphony.org. We are delighted that your student(s) will have an opportunity to hear the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra at a Symphony Street concert. The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra provides other opportunities for you to share the joy of music with young people. The Sunday afternoon Family Concert series is designed to be an entertaining learning experience for the whole family. Also on Sunday afternoons, you and your child may enjoy concerts performed by the Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra. This talented group of student musicians ranging in age from 13-18 performs three subscription concerts a year. We hope you’ll take advantage of these and other concerts to instill in your child a love of orchestral music: a lifelong gift that your child will treasure.
"We're All Family Under One Sky" Each instrument is special. It has its own voice. It plays music in its own way. An orchestra brings all the instruments together. Then their different voices can play one beautiful song.

“The Princess of the Pagodas” from Mother Goose Suite By Maurice Ravel The voices of the instruments can tell a story together. This music tells the story of a princess. She is turned into an ugly girl by a witch. She has to find the prince who can help her. How does this music help you imagine the story?
“Largo” from Palladio By Karl Jenkins The violin is a string instrument. It plays the melody in this song. Melody is the main tune. “Plink, Plank, Plunk!” also uses string instruments. How do these songs sound alike? How are they different?
"Quixote" By Mannie Klein This song h as a specia l pa the trumpe t. It sounds rt for li Spanish tu ne. Imagine ke a another instrument playing the part o trumpet. Ho w would it s f the ound different?
”Praeludium” By Armas Järnefelt Brass instruments are one kind of voice in this music. A brass instrument is made of a metal tube ending in a bell shape. Trumpets are brass instruments. What are some other brass instruments?

By Mona Lynn Reese This song also uses different musical voices to tell a story. You might know the story called The Mitten. The story is about a boy who loses his mitten. The animals find it. The instruments make different sounds for each animal. What animals do you hear?
“Simple Gifts” from Appalachian Spring Aaron Copland
Finale from Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra Benjamin Britten
This music is a ballet. A ballet tells a story without words. This ballet tells the story of people who live in the country. The clarinet is an important musical voice. It is a woodwind instrument. What kinds of scenes do you imagine as you listen?
This music shows off every instrument in the orchestra. Some instruments make banging noises. These instruments are called percussion. They play rhythm. Rhythm is long sounds, short sounds, and in-between sounds. How can you make a rhythm?
“National Emblem March” Edwin Eugene Bagley A march has a strong, steady rhythm. Marches help people walk at the same pace. We hear marches at special events like this concert! ASO Family Concerts October 24, 2010 Halloween Concert Jere Flint, conductor Lee Harper & Dancers 1:30 & 3:30pm
