The Liverpool Middle Orchestra has spent the past few weeks composing an ode to nature. The musical composition will make its debut during Symphoria’s next Young Person’s concert, “Sounds of Nature,” on March 1. Pictured, from left, are Symphoria members Sonya Williams, Allan Kolsky and Kit Dodd, who stopped by LMS to talk with the students about how to enhance their musical composition.
continued Kolsky told the students that there are different types of “music” in nature depending on the time of year, and played examples for the students to help them understand. Subtle variations to a particular sound can help a musician tell a story, he added.
The three Symphoria members had the chance to hear the LMS Orchestra’s song prior to their visit, and were impressed by the work in progress.
“We really enjoyed the tune you wrote,” Kit Dodd said.
Symphoria offers educational performances at the Oncenter for school children, ensemble performances in schools, and performances for families through its Saturday morning Young People's Concert Series. Symphoria is a diverse group of talented musicians from around the world and was formed by Musical Associates of CNY, a nonprofit organization made up of nearly 50 members of the former Syracuse Symphony Orchestra.
