HEB ISD Young People’s Concerts (DATE/TIME & INFO)
Young People’s Concerts will take place at 9:30 AM and 11:00 AM on January 16, 2020, at Trinity High School.
Symphony Arlington provides Young People’s Concerts for HEB ISD. These concerts are a part of an age-specific, arts-integrated curriculum designed to enhance and supplement the arts education programs of the participating school district. This project works through teacher/school partnerships and culminates with a professional symphony orchestra performance by Symphony Arlington for elementary school students in HEB ISD. The Young People’s Concert program creates a platform for learning through creative discovery and enhances the development of critical skills that will be useful to students in all learning endeavors.
The purpose of Symphony Arlington’s Young People’s Concerts is to educate, inspire, and entertain young students by acquainting them with the orchestra, introducing them to a live performance, sparking in them an interest to create music themselves, and fostering in them a lifelong appreciation for quality music. Symphony Arlington’s Young People’s Concerts reach thousands of elementary school students each year.
Students attending this year’s Young People’s Concert will hear a program to include: Overture to Luisa Miller by Giuseppe Verdi; Waltz from Sleeping Beauty by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky; “The Thunderer” by John Philip Sousa; “Fiddle-Faddle” by Leroy Anderson; and Suite from The Lion King by Academy Award winners Elton John and Hans Zimmer.
Symphony Arlington is committed to delivering high quality educational programming to youth in our community.
