Orchestra director Jerry Floor and his players will then perform illustrative demonstrations of each family. The program will conclude with ensemble performances of famous pieces (1eID1). On Tuesday morning, June 5, sixth-grade students will experience hands-on demonstrations of acoustics, including musical instruments and a "ping-pong cannon" that creates shock waves as it shoots balls at high speeds.
