Educational Concert: Around the World in a Hot-Air Balloon!
April 19, 2021, 4:00 pm
This 47 minute concert video was produced and distributed to area schools for musical education, however, it can be enjoyed by all ages. Feel free to watch and share this adventure with your family and friends.
In this imaginary hot-air balloon journey, the SSO String Quintet, Woodwind Quintet and Brass Quintet land in eight countries where they perform a song of the destination country for the throngs of people greeting them.
Included in the presentation is an engaging (but succinct) geography lesson with a map tracing our global travels, an introduction/demonstration of the orchestra instruments, and footage of our balloon taking off and landing back in the USA!
