Young People’s Concerts

Students in grades 4–6 from AISD, Round Rock ISD and other area districts and schools attend full orchestra performances at the Long Center. During the concert, live images of the musicians are projected on a screen behind the orchestra. The program is interdisciplinary, and a study guide is created in collaboration with AISD teachers and distributed to each attending school.

“I have seen many, many, many symphony programs for public education, but they have NEVER been like this one. This is by far the best, most thought-out instructional program. What else would Austin produce but the best?” – Dr. Meria Carstarphen, ex-AISD Superintindent
