Cookie Concert 2.0 Section Showdown
August 23 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
The annual Cookie Concert, a family-friendly musical adventure, returns in an at-home version on August 23 at 2 p.m. Presented by Publix Charities, the video format features many of the popular in-person traditions for families to enjoy while staying safe at home.
Viewers will see a demonstration of soundwaves and a showdown between the four sections of the orchestra: woodwinds, strings, brass and percussion. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the orchestra members were not able to safely perform in close proximity, so musicians from the woodwind, brass and percussion sections recorded individual videos which were compiled. The string section was able to perform on one stage wearing masks.
In the ISO’s online Cookie Concert 2.0 resource kit, families can find a Publix Aprons recipe for Kitchen Pantry Cookies, activities for creating instruments and a special list of music-themed books from the Lakeland Public Library. Visit www.imperialsymphony.org/family to access the video and resources beginning August 23 at 2 p.m.
The Cookie Concert 2.0: Section Showdown is made possible because of support from Publix Charities and Southern Homes.
