What is a story? Good stories draw us in and hold our attention. Writers use common elements; settings, characters, conflict, and resolution. Explore how composers can create musical stories and capture our imagination.
Past Concerts from This Season
Sonic Architecture - OCT 27

Dots & Lines - NOV 21 & Nov 22

Join conductor Daniel Wiley to explore how composers are like painters. They combine and layer short, long, and silent sounds as they write their music. Come hear the CSO connect sounds using dots and lines!
