For Students; GHS
Chorus Takes Part
The Niswonger Performing Arts Center (NPAC) played host to the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra (KSO) and more than 2,200 students from 11 counties on Tuesday.
The KSO, led by Resident Conductor James Fellenbaum, performed "Scientific Symphony," an educational program for students in the second through the seventh grades.
Two concerts were held. Both were sold out.
The unique "Scientific Symphony" program experimented with the science of sound to the amusement of students.
The production demonstrated sound-wave properties for high- and low-pitches and loud and soft volumnes.
The American Museum of Science and Energy joined the stage for select experiments.
Narration and visual elements such as slides, video projections, props, lights, and costumes were also incorporated into the show.
The Greeneville High School Advanced Choir, under the direction of Kathy Mays, also took the stage as special guest performers.
