Since May, 2011, we have been featuring a music appreciation experience we call "Live Notes."
Unlike most approaches to music education, "Live Notes" requires no pre-concert lessons or lectures. Simply put, this is a "play-by-play" experience for live musical performances.
At the Youth Symphony's annual Spring concerts, audience members are invited to "play along" with the Youth Symphony Orchestra and Pikes Peak Winds as they perform.
A number is projected above the orchestra as the ensembles are playing. The audience is directed to find the corresponding paragraph and read it at the same time.
