Young People’s Concerts

2020 Update: Due to Covid-19 a live, in-person event is not scheduled at this time. We will announce any 2021 updates as soon as possible.

Young People’s Concerts are offered annually in late October for a one-hour daytime concert designed especially for elementary school students. Each program, based on a unique theme, is introduced to the children by the conductor, who explains aspects of the music, using examples and stories about each piece. The concerts are both informative and entertaining. Recent concerts have featured the following themes: What Makes Music Sound American?  Storm Chasers! and Musicalympics. Registration opens in September.
