Crescent Students Enjoy Omaha Symphony Presentation

The kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade classes attended a presentation by the Omaha Symphony of Mission Imagination – “The Musical Adventures of Melvin the Explorer”.  Students were able to help make choices guiding Melvin and the orchestra through various musical landscapes.  There was singing, learning and playing along!  Students were encouraged to bring handmade instruments to assist Melvin through the treacherous terrains and help him to solve musical riddles.  Sounds like a lot of fun, doesn’t it?

Mission Imagination is an interactive production where students are encouraged to participate with singing, playing handmade instruments, listening, with opportunities to conduct along with the Omaha Symphony.  The Omaha Symphony provided a wonderful packet for educators to prepare students for the performance, including directions on how to make homemade instruments.  A 2nd grade student really enjoyed the music which he recognized from other movies he had seen.  Another student really enjoyed the orchestra although he thought it was ‘too loud’.

All in all, it appears the students were entertained and also had a great learning experience!
