Mission Imagination

A bizarre illness has struck the orchestra and they cannot play the concert. Maestro Ian and the students team up to help Dr. Dolce in this medical, musical caper that examines the orchestra's instrument families.

Mission Imagination combines a child’s love of storytelling with the power of symphonic music in an up-close and playful setting. The program’s dynamic format puts kids in the center of the action, making them active participants in their own learning.

Performance Note: Handmade instruments are not only encouraged, but highly recommended! Check out our educator packet for ideas!
