Field Trip - UPbeat Minnesota Orchestra Concert

The centerpiece of the concert is Steve Heitzeg’s The Tin Forest, based on the children’s book by Helen Ward. Narrating will be noted polar explorer Ann Bancroft.

The story is about making the best of what you have, without forgetting your dreams. An old man lives in a junkyard and is very unhappy in that gray and rainy place. He yearns to live in a tropical forest – a paradise of trees, plants, flowers, and animals. But he spends his days sorting, sifting, burying, and burning things no one else wants. Then a piece of junk inspires an idea. The old man begins to build a forest from all of the garbage. Gradually he makes a sculpture garden from recycled junk.

The concert will open with a new piece by Dan Visconti, titled Overdrive. The piece will feature students from Minneapolis’ Seward Elementary School as a guest percussion ensemble.

Magdalena Mullerperth will join the orchestra as a soloist in the finale to Mendelssohn’s First Piano Concerto. Currently a student at Shattuck St. Mary’s School Faribault, Magdalena is the winner of the 2007 Young People’s Symphony Concert Association’s (YPSCA) School Music Auditions. Additional pieces by Mendelssohn and Ravel will round out the program.
