Your digital resource for all things educational at the PSO!
The Science of Sound
This all new program is led by Music Director Eckart Preu alongside the PSO’s in-house Sound Scientist, Professor Ashanti as they explore the core concepts of how sound gets created in a musical instrument and travels through the air to fill an entire concert hall.
These early-age performances are scaled to engage K-3rd grade students while providing an introductory overview of orchestral instruments and music.

The Music of John Williams
John Williams is perhaps the United States’ greatest living composer and very likely the most well known ﬁlm composer of all time. While the PSO had hoped to do a Youth Concert dedicated to John Williams entirely, we sadly are unable to. However, you can listen to the music that would have been in that performance as well as dive in to the teachers materials.
