“Compose Yourself! by James Stephenson has the perfect blend of education and entertainment. Students learn about the instruments of the orchestra and even get to participate in composing a piece using three elements of music- melody, harmony, and rhythm. The program is lighthearted and comical and the musicians really got into the theatrical aspects of it. The Atlanta Symphony will definitely be using this fantastic educational program again!”Janice Crews, former Education Director Atlanta Symphony Orchestra
An interactive, educational and entertaining show designed to introduce children of all ages to the instruments of the symphony orchestra.
