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 2018 Youth Concerts will pay homage to Leonard Bernstein and his pioneering Young People’s Concerts. Students will explore a wide array of repertoire from all periods and will learn about the meanings of music and its value in our daily lives. Performances will take place on March 29, 2018 at 9:30 am, 11 am and 1 pm. For more information please send us a message using the form below.
