November 2, 2023:
Next Educational Concert
We are proud each fall to present A Musical Adventure, an educational concert for elementary and middle school students in field-trip groups; these concerts are ideal for students in grades 3-6. Our performances capture the imaginations of our young audience members, all while giving them the experience of a live concert and showing them how players make music together.
The 2023 concert is set for November 2 in Oak Brook. Two 45-minute performances are planned, at 9:30 am and 10:45 am. Tickets are $6 per person, with each school receiving free admission for one adult chaperone per 12 students. The registration package is available here. We expect 900-1000 attendees; advance reservations are required.
At this year's concert, we will demonstrate the sound of all the instruments in the orchestra and perform two engaging pieces of music: The Bamboula Rhapsodic Dance by Samuel Coleridge-Taylor and Danse Macabre by Camille-Saint Saens. Both are sure to delight our student audience!
