A morning at the Symphony Orchestra



What a great education concert!
We all enjoyed the beautiful music played by the Windsor Symphony Orchestra. We attended Percussion Power and the conductor was excellent at explaining the different instruments from the percussion section and the different pieces we listened to.
Photography wasn't allowed during the concert, so I took these photos before the performance. As part of the percussion performance, we also listened to instruments from different parts of the world. From the Middle East, we heard the doumbek. Two First Nations drummers came and played their big drum and sang for us. 
We will be looking forward to attending more of these concerts in the future.
The Capitol Theatre where the concert too place was also a wonderful place to see. This particular theatre was built in 1920 by Thomas W. Lamb, one of North America's premiere early 20th century theatre designers, and renovated in 1995.
