Explore the Orchestra! is a fun and informative educational concert created and performed by the Western Piedmont Symphony under the direction of Maestro Matthew Troy. This concert reinforces essential standards from the K-8 NC Essential Standards in Music and will help enable students to recognize the different instrument families of the orchestra and how they produce sound.
