Young People's Concerts
M is for Music
February 16th, 9:30 a.m. & 11 a.m.
Each year, more than 3,500 school children enjoy learning about and listening to symphonic music at live performances designed especially for young people. These age-appropriate concerts give students the opportunity to experience live orchestral music performed by our full orchestra in a concert hall setting.
This year, music director Andrew Crust teams up with award-winning Canadian writer, actor, and filmmaker Shauna Johanneson in “M is For Music.” This engaging and heart-tugging introduction to symphonic music follows the story of Sarah T. Murdoch, a girl who is sure that M is for…Meh. There are ZERO Jellyfish at the Civic Center and not a single dinosaur. Could music be its own adventure? In this delightful introduction to the symphony, Sarah explores the big questions: What is music for? Where does it come from? And is fancy-schmancy orchestra music really for everyone?
