YOUNG PEOPLE’S CONCERTS
October 15, 2013
The annual Young People's Concerts will bring together approximately 6,000 fourth grade children from almost 100 different elementary schools in Springfield and many surrounding rural communities 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 October 15, 2013. 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.
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.
