The 2018 Fall Youth Concerts Curriculum Guide will be available six to eight weeks before the concert.
The 2018 concerts theme is "Invitation to the Dance," featuring works by Bach, Beethoven, Dvorak, and Bernstein!.
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 contact Lisa Kjentvet, Education Assistant, at lkjentvet@madisonsymphony.org for more information about the Docent Program.
“These are high quality programs…Programs like these help to light the classical music fire.” – MSO Musician and Music Educator
“I always thought that watching an orchestra on TV was boring and something that old people did. This was different! These were real people playing music right in front of me. I loved being able to hear the music and let it touch my ears and heart.” - Student
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.
