Woodwinds: Song Soup

Melody, Harmony, Rhythm, and teamwork. It doesn’t take much to make a great piece of music. This highly interactive show, performed by the PSO Woodwind section is all about the parts of music and songs get made. 


Strings: Under the Sea with Swimmy

Performed by the PSO String Quintet, this performance needs the audiences help to tell the musical story of Swimmy, a fish who gets lost in a big ocean. Along the way Swimmy meets many different animals living under the water, but should he be afraid of them? The musicians of the PSO String Quintet need your help to match the music with the animal in this ‘choose-your-own-adventure’ style performance.
