Our Youth Concerts inspire 4,000 4th-6th graders each spring and serve schools from an 8-county radius. These free concerts feature the full orchestra in creative and interactive programs.
The 2022 Youth Concerts will take place in person at the Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts Center on April 5. The performances are the culmination of our digital education series, Music Makes Me. The six-episode series features key musicians from the orchestra discussing how it feels to play and listen to a variety of orchestral pieces. Students should watch all six episodes in class or at home in preparation for experiencing these same inspiring works presented live by the full orchestra.
wcfsymphony Youth Concerts are made possible by generous grants from the R.J. McElroy Trust, Guernsey Charitable Foundation and Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa as well as the wcfsymphony Education Committee and Martha Kroese.
