Sound Impact is proud to become an In-School Ensemble with the National Symphony Orchestra. Sound Impact’s education program inspires self-esteem for even the youngest audience member. This engaging program explores themes of embracing our differences and staying true to oneself through the story "The Trouble With Ben" (music by composer D.J. Sparr, lyrics and story by Grammy award winning writer Barry Louis Polisar) and the timeless music from West Side Story (arranged by John Wineglass). This program features interactive games to deepen the experience and understanding of these string instruments and new sounds and textures of contemporary music brought to life by a string trio.
