Family Musical Moment 2
Farmers & Merchants Bank
Jacob Sustaita, conductor
BEETHOVEN: Symphony No. 6, "Pastoral"
Movement 3: "Merry gathering of peasants"
Designed for children ages 4-11.
The second Family Musical Moment continues to explore Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6, which the composer titled the "Pastoral Symphony or Recollections of Country Life," reflecting his love of nature. This time, the orchestra plays the third movement in which the music depicts a "Merry gathering of peasants."
As Dr. Jacob Sustaita guides you through the symphony, you’ll enjoy the fun, color commentary cartoon pop-ups in the video that tell you what’s happening in the music.
This performance will be available for FREE streaming through June 20.
Pacific Symphony's kid-friendly Virtual Concerts and Family Musical Moments (short musical explorations) are led by Assistant Conductor, Dr. Jacob Sustaita and made possible through the generous sponsorship of Farmers & Merchants Bank.
If you missed the first Family Musical Moment with the beginning of Beethoven's "Pastoral" Symphony, you can watch it through June 6.
