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 concerts take place in Oak Brook in mid to late October of each year.
We welcomed 900 children to our October 2022 concert, where we demonstrated the sound of the instruments in the orchestra and performed music written by two groundbreaking composers: Cecile Chaminade of France and Florence Price of the United States.
Please contact us if you'd like to be on the mailing list for our 2023 educational concert! We'll then let you know the date of the concert and provide information on how to bring your students to the performance.
