The group, under the direction of conductor Nan Washburn, performs various music from classical to multi-cultural to movie music and features educational demonstrations showcasing how each of their instruments is made and how each makes sound while performing.
Each year students in the Plymouth-Canton, Taylor, Van Buren and Romulus School districts partner with the Michigan Philharmonic in this program to introduce students to the instruments of the orchestra and enjoy their concert performance of various types of music while learning about the science of sound.
