Ensembles in the Schools
This program offers every first, second and third grade student the opportunity to participate in a series of three interactive assembly presentations about orchestral music. MSO musicians introduce students to instrument families, basic musical concepts, and familiar songs and great classical compositions to improve their musical awareness.
MSO Youth Concerts
The Maryland Symphony Orchestra Youth Concerts are held each spring at the Maryland Theatre. We utilize the LinkUp program through Carnegie Hall, which gives students grades 3-5 the opportunity to join the orchestra in a participatory program in which they learn to sing and/or play an instrument in the classroom and perform with the MSO from the audience.
There are currently no concerts scheduled due to COVID-19.
This program is made possible through the generosity of our Youth Concerts sponsor:
