Rationale:

Many BYB field trip performances include classical music from the
RI Philharmonic as well as local and national chamber ensembles on tour. Music is
often featured by FirstWorks, and musical theatre is presented in both professional
and college performances. Folk and traditional/ethnic music performances offer
musical forms from specific cultures. Going to a music field trip
can inspire you to compose music of your own.
