Explore the Orchestra! is a fun and informative educational concert created and performed by the Western Piedmont Symphony under the direction of Maestro Matthew Troy. This concert reinforces essential standards from the K-8 NC Essential Standards in Music and will help enable students to recognize the different instrument families of the orchestra and how they produce sound. Students will have an opportunity to hear the individual instruments, the instrument families, and how they work together to create the magic of a full symphony orchestra.

ABOUT WESTERN PIEDMONT SYMPHONY

The mission of the Western Piedmont Symphony (WPS) is to enrich and engage the communities of Western North Carolina through high quality symphonic music with creative, relevant performances and educational opportunities for all ages. Since 1964, WPS has accomplished this mission by providing exceptional music to the region. From the world-class artistry of the Masterworks series, to the spectacular entertainment of the Foothills Pops series, to the genre-bending diversity of the Chamber Classics series, there is something for everyone at the Western Piedmont Symphony.

Education is a core component of the Western Piedmont Symphony. There are multiple educational programs reaching different grade levels, as well as specific concert programs targeted towards young adults, families, and senior citizens. Each year, the Symphony performs educational concerts for thousands of students throughout Western North Carolina. WPS is also the home of two ensembles for young musicians: Debut Strings, a group for aspiring string players, and Western Piedmont Youth Symphony, a full orchestra of high school-level students.
