My First Classical Music Album

My First Classical Music Album


There is a BIG hall filled with hundreds of people. They are just getting comfortable in their seats when the musicians walk onto the stage, carrying instruments. There are the string instruments: the violins, violas, cellos and large double basses, which are heavy to carry.

There are the brass instruments: horns, trumpets, trombones and a tuba. And there are the woodwind instruments: flutes, oboes, clarinets and bassoons. The percussionists walk onto the stage too, but they are not carrying anything because their instruments – drums, triangles, timpani, xylophone and bells – are already set up.

The musicians sit in their places, making a semi-circle on the stage and leaving a space in the front for the conductor. Then you can hear a long, clear note – an ‘A’ – from the oboe.

All the musicians in the orchestra copy that note, making sure they are all in tune.

When they are quiet and ready, the conductor walks onto the stage, carrying with him the little stick called a baton. He steps up onto the podium so that he’s a bit taller, bows to the audience, and everyone claps. He turns around to face the orchestra and lifts up his baton.

Everyone is silent. All the musicians are looking at that stick, with their instruments ready.

Suddenly, down it goes and the whole orchestra starts to play! The concert has begun!
