The 2017 concerts theme is “From the New World,” with repertoire including Gould’s American Salute; Dvořák’s Symphony 9 “The New World,” I. Adagio; Copland’s Lincoln Portrait; and Sousa’s Stars and Stripes Forever.
The MSO’s Fall Youth Concerts reach nearly 5,000 elementary school children each year. These concerts enrich, engage, and inspire through themed, multi-dimensional performances that include coordinating visual images, introductions to the compositions, and inspiring performances by the students’ peers – the winners of the annual Fall Youth Concerto Competition.
We can also help prepare your students for the concerts free of charge! We’ll send one of our professional musicians and a Madison Symphony Orchestra League member to your classroom to introduce the musical works, the composer, and concert etiquette in fun and engaging ways. Please indicate whether you would like a visit from our docents on the registration form.
WANT TO ATTEND?
Seats for the MSO’s youth concerts are $4 per student. Parents, teachers, and chaperones are free of charge with groups over 10 students. Subsidized tickets are available depending on your school’s participation in the free/reduced lunch program.
If you have any questions, please contact MSO Director of Education and Community Engagement Kathryn Schwarzmann at (608) 257-3734 x225 or email@example.com.
