The Science of Sound

Education Everywhere is sponsored by

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. Professor Ashanti covers topics that students in grades 4-8 explore in school like how vibration, amplitude, frequency, and more go in to making the music we can hear with our ears. The PSO performs works by composers like James Reese Europe, Miguel de Aguila, Rossini, and Mozart.

The PSO’s The Science of Sound is made possible in part by our education partner, IDEXX Laboratories.
