“Gravity in Space and Sound” with New Bedford Symphony Orchestra

Terrry W

Earlier this month, the Bay Club welcomed Terry Wolkowicz, Education Director for the New Bedford Symphony Orchestra, as she presented “Gravity in Space and Sound.”  Along with the accompaniment of cellist Peter, oboist Laura and violinist Travis, three talented musicians from the orchestra, Ms. Wolkowicz discussed the meaningful connections between musical chord progressions and the movement of objects in space.  Members thoroughly enjoyed the musical pieces played that exemplified the gravitational forces between the planets and the sun.

Terry shared that the presentation is representative of the Orchestra’s “Learning in Concert” program, an in-school partnership program with the NBSO and over fifty local elementary schools in southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island.  In 2016-2017, more than 50 schools partnered with the NBSO for their “Gravity in Space and Sound” program.  During this project, Terry aided the students in demonstrating the idea of gravity through astronomy, physics and music; through studying gravitational forces working within our solar system; and by performing classical music that shares these same forces within a musical system.

A graduate of the New England Conservatory of Music and Harvard University, Terry is in her seventh season with the NBSO, and continues to create innovative programming that connects classical music to our South Coast children’s lives and learning by exploring concepts that are authentically shared between classical music, the arts and academics.
