Young People’s Concerts are a fun and educational one-hour concert experience designed just for kids! This year’s theme is The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra by Benjamin Britten. Students will go on a fun musical tour of all the instruments in the orchestra led by Artistic Director Daniel Meyer. From clanging cymbals and the bold brass to the soothing sound of the strings, students will learn what makes each of the instruments unique and hear how they all work together to create beautiful music.
