Concert #4 – “Music For Social Change” shows how music has been used all over the world in many cultures as a vehicle for social change, whether as a public expression of protest (“We Shall Overcome”), an expression of outrage (Shostakovich, String Quartet No. 8), or a way to imagine a better world (Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy,” now an anthem for hope and change worldwide). It is appropriate for late elementary through high school audiences.
Bronx Arts Ensemble’s new virtual concert series introduces students to classical music and orchestral instruments through a diverse set of programs, including folk songs from many cultures, music by contemporary New York composers, and classics like Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy.” It features BAE teaching artists Evelyn Petcher & Thomas Martin (violin), Wil Dannenberg (french horn), and Kika Wright (bassoon), who both perform and share historical and cultural information about each piece in engaging, interactive ways. The four concerts explore themes of identity, hope, unity, and social change, and how music has been used to express each of these in different cultures and moments in history.
