Symmetry in Shapes and Music
The New Bedford Symhony Orchestra’s Learning in Concert program is a three-phase arts integration project that typically spans a school year and reaches thousands of elementary students across South Coast by bringing the first two phases into their schools and then presenting the culminating Young People’s Concerts at the Zeiterion Performing Arts Center. It explores a musical concept alongside other art and academic areas that authentically share the same concept. By using the unique, impactful, and accessible qualities of classical music in combination with other relevant arts and academic areas, students not only discover how seemingly unrelated concepts are connected, but they build deep and flexible understandings that span time, cultures, and contexts.
With so many students across South Coast learning from home, we decided to take Learning in Concert online! This free four-part video series, hosted by Education Director Terry Wolkowicz, explores symmetry in shapes and symmetry in classical music. The final video will feature your favorite NBSO musicians from our Learning in Concert program!
In this first video, we explore slide symmetry in Mozart’s Piano Sonata No. 16 in C Major. Enjoy!
