The Young People’s concert season kicked off on October 23rd with Watch the Orchestra Grow. Over the course of two days, more than 6,000 students filled Orchestra Hall to enjoy the music of Mozart, Beethoven, and more. Check out what the teachers and parents had to say!
“This experience was amazing for my students. My school, in particular, is very high poverty and kids come from very diverse backgrounds. Providing them with this experience is, for a lot of the, a once in a lifetime opportunity. I'm hoping some of them were inspired to continue on with music into their middle school years!”
“My son has been writing "symphony movements" on the piano since our field trip.”
“Well, they wouldn't stop talking about the percussionist with the whip on the Percussion Mvt of the Britten piece, so he did a wonderful job! Overall, the kids were enamored with being inside the hall and how cool of an experience it was.”
“I would give your concert series an A+ for educational value. I'm deeply appreciative of the opportunity to expose my children to the beauty of music. Thank you!”
“I loved the concert. I love everything that you all do for our students in helping to educate them and promote classical music in a positive and super fun manner. I'm looking forward to next year!”
“Thank you for your time and effort in gifting this experience to the students in the Twin Cities! We love coming to the orchestra!”
