Mission Imagination

Color Crook

A mysterious bandit has snuck into the concert and is stealing all the unique sounds out of the orchestra to keep to themselves! We need your help identifying each instrument family and restoring the music before it is too late!

Mission Imagination combines a child’s love of storytelling with the power of symphonic music in an up-close and playful setting. The program’s dynamic format puts kids in the center of the action, making them active participants in their own learning. Help us teach the Color Crook that we need all of the voices of the orchestra to work together and that celebrating difference is key to making the world sing.

Iowa Schools should register for the IWCC dates through the Arts Center. Please call 712-388-7140 for more information.
