Young People’s Concert Livestream: Taking a Stand Through Music

At a Glance

This concert is recommended for grades 3-6.

Far from staying in an ivory tower, classical composers often take a stand on the issues of their day and thus shape the thoughts and actions of others. Students will learn how Sibelius’ rousing Finlandia was written to protest press censorship, while other composers have reflected on the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., stood up for women’s voting rights and memorialized African American soldiers who died fighting for the Union in the Civil War.

We hope that during the year, classes will be inspired to undertake service projects and provide photos of their work. Then, as this program concludes with Stravinsky’s triumphant Firebird, we’ll project images of how they’ve taken action in their communities, just like the composers heard here.
