The HPO is proud to partner with both the Hamilton and Burlington Public Libraries for ensemble performances and engaging talks all year round. Whether it is a holiday performance with the Brass Quintet, a fascinating talk about music and hearing loss with Composer-in-Residence Abigail Richardson-Schulte, or an engaging educational concert for kids, we love presenting accessible programing at our local library branches.

HPO Composer-in-Residence Abigail Richardson-Schulte shares how composers tell stories through music with examples from two of her compositions, based on beloved children’s books, The Hockey Sweater and Alligator Pie. Participants will learn about the instruments found in Western orchestras and how their unique sounds can bring characters and environments to life.
