Have you ever tried to make the sound a bee makes? This program features the brass family, which includes the trumpet, trombone, horn, and tuba. Brass players produce sound by buzzing their lips into the instrument's mouthpiece. Each brass instrument only has a few valves or slide positions so different pitches are created by changing the speed of buzzing, the focus of the airstream, or the height of the tongue. Philadelphia Orchestra Principal Tuba Carol Jantsch will demonstrate the low-sounding tuba and guide the audience through the brass family.
The Sound All Around concert series is presented by PNC Grow Up Great and is endowed in perpetuity by the Garrison Family Fund for Children's Concerts.
