Music on the Move! is a FREE program available through a partnership between the Muncie Symphony Orchestra and the Ball State University School of Music. This unique program allows elementary-aged students to experience a small chamber ensemble (string quartet, woodwind quintet, brass quintet) in a casual, interactive musical conversation. Performances for elementary students are upbeat and informal.
As visits allow, the program is available for a variety of venues including: public and private schools, pre-schools, non-profit educational organizations, nursing homes, adult day-care centers and groups of home schooled students.

Music on the Move
(Recommended Ages: All Ages, ages 3+)
Music on the Move brings professional chamber musicians to your classroom or school assembly to provide an interactive, fun, and educational performance for your students. Each ensemble has its own unique repertoire and presents new themes and concepts each year. So, even if you’ve seen one of our ensembles in past seasons, it is guaranteed that you will have a new experience! Your students will engage in discussions and learn about topics such as imagery, imagination, emotions, motives, teamwork, ensemble etiquette, melody, harmony, how instruments are made, how they function, and much more! Presentations are 25-30 min in length and can be presented to any number of students per session. You may request up to 2-3 presentations per visit.
