Sound All Around: Percussion

10:00 AM, Academy of Music Ballroom
Angela Zator Nelson - Percussion

Almost anything in the world can become a percussion instrument if you use your imagination!

This family includes the xylophone, glockenspiel, chimes, cymbals, and drums. Philadelphia Orchestra percussionist, Angela Zator Nelson, will guide you through these big and small, loud and soft instruments. We'll clap our hands and stomp our feet through this performance!

He'll shine in Mendelssohn's innovative Piano Concerto No. 1. Yannick also brings us Haydn's stirring Overture to the opera L'isola disabitata, part of his focus on that composer's music, as well as Schubert's Symphony in C major, his final completed symphony, and absolutely deserving of its less formal title: the “Great.”
