Join the Tucson Symphony Orchestra with returning guest conductor Chris Confessore for Young People’s Concerts. This year’s program features The Melodic Life composed and performed by Gregory Smith. It employs a “follow that melody” approach that traces the life of a lighthearted melody named Bob from early childhood to middle age. Stops are made at a variety of life events including going to school, playing sports and job experiences, such as being in a circus and a Broadway show. The Melodic Life hones the listening skills of the audience while fostering a deeper appreciation for melodic use and development. The proverbial message “variety is the spice of life” will ring in the listeners’ ears as well as their hearts.
