Sound All Around: Winds

11:15 AM, Academy of Music Ballroom
Charlotte Blake Alston - Host and Storyteller
Erica Peel - Piccolo/Flute

Take a deep breath and get ready to learn all about the woodwinds! This instrument family includes the flute, clarinet, oboe, and bassoon. So, what makes them alike? Woodwind musicians blow air into, against, or across the instrument. Some of these instruments use reeds – little pieces of wood that create vibrations and sound. Philadelphia Orchestra Piccolo, Erica Peel, will lead you through the different ways the woodwinds are played and their special place in the orchestra.

Yannick and Manny

8:00 PM, Verizon Hall
Yannick Nézet-Séguin - Conductor
Emanuel Ax - Piano
Brahms - Piano Concerto No. 2
Brown - Perspectives
Dvorák - Symphony No. 7

Don't miss hearing this powerful musical partnership. The legendary Emanuel Ax solos in Brahms's stirring Second Piano Concerto (he seems “to enfold every listener in a metaphorical embrace”—The Seattle Times). And Yannick and the Orchestra present Dvorák's Seventh Symphony, inspired by Brahms (and by Dvorák's intense Czech patriotism).
