Terra Voce offers an interactive elementary school performance called “Musical Opposites” that presents musical concepts such as tempo, dynamics, range, etc. within the broader topic of opposites. The goal is to deepen children’s understanding of the meaning of opposites through a fun program of music ranging from “The Flight of the Bumblebee” to lively Brazilian traditional music. Terra Voce performs “Musical Opposites” as an In-School Ensemble for the Roanoke Symphony Orchestra’s Studio RSO program.
For middle and high school music classes, Terra Voce performs informal and interactive adaptations of their standard concert programs that explore diverse musical styles from around the world.
Absolutely lovely assembly today provided by Terra Voce. I appreciated their thoughtfulness in reinforcing terms and concepts so vital to elementary music. They held the children’s attention – asking for good audience behavior when appropriate and allowing them to be loud kids at other times. So glad they came to our school.

Your performance was FANTASTIC today. The kids were totally engaged and I truly enjoyed the performance. It was amazing how your choice of music fit right into our International Studies curriculum. Thank you so much for performing for us today!
