This concert uses music to capture the energetic and bold spirit of childhood. Both students and adults will enjoy high energy pieces which will serve as a background for Dr. Bruce Briney’s introduction of the instruments of the orchestra to school children and members of the community. Over 3,000 children from over 30 area schools will be attending these concerts during the school day. The 11:30 a.m. performance is free and open to the public—and at about 45 minutes, it’s perfect for a lunch break.
Please note: No ticket is required for this concert. The front of the auditorium is reserved for school groups. The public will be seated at the back of the auditorium. Teachers & Administrators click here for registration information.
