Lower Elementary Concerts

 

Lower Elementary Concerts provide a full-orchestra experience for grades 2 & 3 to allow students to gather information about the instruments in a symphony orchestra, the musicians who play them and the sounds they create. These concerts are designed to spark the imagination of students and provide motivation to be involved in music. Using grades 2 & 3 content from the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills, students will connect ideas they already know from their classroom to iconic orchestral masterworks.

REGISTRATION

Registration for this year's Lower Elementary Concerts will begin on September 15, 2017 at 10am. Check back to this webpage for more information in September.

Note: there are limited opportunities for lower elementary grade levels this year. We recommend schools prioritizing 4th and 5th grade students through the Upper Elementary Series this year.
