YOUNG PEOPLE’S CONCERTS
November 11, 2014
The annual Young People's Concerts will bring together approximately 6,000 fourth grade children from all Springfield R-12 district schools, 50 area school districts, and students from private, parochial and home schools to listen to live symphonic music and to gain valuable exposure to the elements of musical styles and eras. Each of the Young People's Concerts is specifically designed to be an in-depth learning experience.
Three concerts are planned for November 11, 2014. The first concert is at the Andy Williams Theater in Branson at 9:15 a.m. The 11:15 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. concerts are at High Street Baptist Church located at 900 North Eastgate Avenue, Springfield, MO.
Following each performance, the teachers follow up with each class attending in discussing important elements of the musical experience so as to integrate the concert experience into the students' curriculum.
