Youth Concerts

Our Youth Concerts inspire 4,000 4th-6th graders each April and serve schools from an 8-county radius.  These free concerts at the Gallagher-Bluedorn feature the full orchestra in creative and interactive programs. Local educators work with wcfsymphony to create materials that help teachers integrate the concert experience into their classroom curriculum.

The 2017 Youth Concerts will explore the magic of music through John Williams’ scores for the Harry Potter films and related pieces by Grieg, Mussorgsky, and Iowa composer Paul Alan Price-Brenner. Performances will take place on March 30, 2017 at 9:30 am, 11 am and 1 pm. Learn more about the program here. For more information please send us a message using the form below.
