This site, sponsored by IBM, is an important component of The Sound Project, a collaboration between the Minnesota Orchestral Association and the Science Museum of Minnesota. It was created with the assistance and input of elementary school classes at the Franklin Music Magnet and the Linwood A+ elementary schools in Saint Paul and the Armitage and Barton elementary schools in Minneapolis.
The Sound Project--funded by the Katherine B. Andersen Fund of The Saint
Paul Foundation, AT&T,
the Knight Foundation, Leonard Street & Deinard and the National
Endowment for the Arts-- features an original composition for
orchestra, actor, and young audience by composer Libby Larsen and poet
John Coy to be performed by the Minnesota Orchestra in March, 1999.
