Fieldstone Day School Goes to the Symphony

One of the benefits of a small private school like ours is numerous fieldtrips to exciting and enriching events and performances. We feel that it is important for students to make connections between their learning in the classrooms, and the broader culture in which they live. In our thriving Music programme, we welcome opportunities for our students to view live music of a high calibre.

On Thursday, students traveled to downtown Toronto to view the Toronto Symphony Orchestra in concert. The musicians played a wide range of pieces, ranging from classics like Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, to the main theme from Star Wars. The orchestra was joined by the percussion quartet TorQ, who entertained the audience by playing instruments like toys and garbage cans as well as the more traditional drums and mallet instruments.

We have been preparing our students to best appreciate the concert repertoire by playing featured pieces throughout the school each morning for the past week. This exposure, plus the lessons in our Music classes, helped the trip to be meaningful and valuable to every student. As always, FDS audience members were respectful, responsive, and very appreciative of this fieldtrip opportunity.
