Musical Discoveries

Recommended for grades 1 – 3

The Musical Discoveries program is designed for our youngest school audiences in grades 1 – 3. Here, they discover a magical world of amazing music and story enhanced by visual entertainers and plenty of surprises. A comprehensive, Orff-focused, curriculum-based Study Guide is provided to teachers to prepare and deepen their students’ experience in anticipation of this highly engaging symphonic introduction.

Students will discover a magical world of the orchestra and orchestral music through story enhanced by visual art and guest performers.


Discover the musical world of the orchestra, and we might just need your help to save them too! Winnipeg’s one and only Super-Duper Symphonic Superhero needs your help to save conductor Naomi Woo and the orchestra from the diabolical schemes of Kaos and Konfuzed, the evil Boyz of Noise! Students will enjoy a hit-list of symphonic favourites, including music by Grieg, Khchaturian, Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, R. Strauss, Strauss Jr., Liszt, Smetana, and more! This just might be the first time pyjamas, a living room, superheroes, and villains collide on Centennial Concert Hall stage.
