Out of This World Musical Experience!

Four children standing in front of a brick wall displaying canned foods. Second grade students at Watauga Elementary School experienced an out of this world musical experience when they traveled to Freedom Hall in Johnson City to hear the Johnson City Symphony Orchestra perform. The concert was titled “Journey to Space” and featured songs Venus, Mars and Jupiter  from Gustav’s Holst’s  Planets Suite, Attack of the Clones from Star Wars, and even a medley of songs from the hit movie Frozen.

Students have been preparing for this concert by learning about the various instruments, timbres, and instrument families that make up the modern day orchestra. Students also learned about appropriate concert etiquette and represented Watauga with their outstanding audience behavior. The students also brought along tons of canned goods to donate to the Second Harvest Food Bank. The students really enjoyed being able to hear unique instrument sounds and see the instruments in action.
