Guided by our hosts Isabeau Blanche and Pierre-Louis Renaud, we will delve into the heart of the orchestra and get to know its four families of instruments, its history and some of its secrets!

Under the baton of Thomas Le Duc-Moreau who conducts a selection of works by Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven and many others, we will learn how composers took inspiration from the world around them and conveyed their emotions through music. From the Classical symphony to film music, including modern music and program music, we will find out all about this, while having fun with The Orchestra in All Its Forms!

Your viewing will include a bilingual digital educational kit, which includes preparatory activities for your viewing, learning material to do after the concert as well as a concert guide for your students.
