Throughout the year, all 4th and 5th graders have been listening to a variety of music including ballet, opera, orchestra, band, and piano solos. They have been learning about the different instruments, composers, and history of each piece. After taking quizzes and a final exam on 16 specific pieces, 12 students (6 from each grade) placed in the top of their class (combined music, piano, and orchestra students).
These students will travel to the Meyerson Symphony Center on Tuesday, April 25, 2017 to hear the Dallas Symphony Orchestra perform live excerpts from these pieces in which they will identify the name and composer. Each team will compete against the other groups from their grade level across the district for the chance to win first place and a trophy. They will even get to hear two full pieces for a mini concert along with the opportunity to compete. This is the first year HSMA will go to this competition!
