From rehearsal to performance, conductor Joann Falletta introduces students to a symphony orchestra - and, at the same time, to polyphony, when several melodies are played simultaneously. Teacher's Guide activities let children explore how polyphony works and sounds, and how different accompaniments change how a melody sounds. Behind the Scenes is an exciting and fun exploration for children and adults alike into the world of painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, music, dance and theater. Produced & Directed by Ellen Hovde and Muffie Meyer. Hosted by Penn and Teller.
