This spring the PSO will release its first-ever all-digital Discovery Concert for Families, The Science of Sound. The program will explore the scientific fundamentals of how an orchestra uses its instrument to turn sound into beautiful music including topics like vibration, waves, amplitude, and wavelengths. This program will feature works by composers like Mozart, James Reese Europe, Vivaldi, and Rossini.

 

This program will be made available for free to the students and families of Maine and will be available to stream on Portland Symphony TV and here on the website.
