Harmon is stuck in space and she can’t land her ship! She needs to play the correct piece of music into her computer in order to land on Earth. It’s a good thing she has her friends in the Kingston Symphony! Join Kingston Symphony Principal Flute, Amelia Lyon, and her friends in the Kingston Symphony as they try and help Harmon out. Learn more about the flute along the way!
The musical selection in this video, which features the flute so beautifully is an excerpt from Canadian composer Ryan Trew’s First Symphony. Ryan Trew is also the composer of the incidental music for this series. Subscribe to our channel to make sure you are the first to know when the next episode arrives!
