Youth Concerts

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 2023 Youth Concerts will take place in person at the Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts Center on March 28. This year's concerts feature jazz maestro Bruce Henry as he caps off a season-long community residency entitled The Evolution of African American Music. This concert features an array of wonderful repertoire for full orchestra organized around Bruce's panoramic history of Black music.
