Second Grade had a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra with front row seats to their Feel the Music series, which helps children to understand how music can effect mood and feelings. The students ended their trip with a backstage tour of Kleinhans, getting a view from the players' perspective and learning how Kleinhans is acoustically perfect! The second graders were able to interact with the conductor, musicians, and the painter/artist who were part of making the music happen. They saw all the orchestra's instruments that they learned about in school. Second graders even got to see the vast collection of sheet music that is played by the BPO!
