Almost 4,000 students gathered at the Mark C. Smith Concert Hall Thursday for the Annual Young People’s Concert, which is hosted by the Huntsville Symphony Orchestra, along with the Huntsville Symphony Orchestra Guild and SAIC.
The goal is to introduce students to the music and instill in them a lifelong love of the art. This year, Gregory Vajda, HSO Music Director and Conductor, will lead the orchestra in a performance of Benjamin Britten’s the Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra.
Free concerts will also be happening Friday at 9:30 in the morning and at noon. All area schools are invited to participate.
The orchestra and the guild invite all area schools to participate in this free educational program! For information on how your school can participate, email Lauren Jones, Marketing and Development Associate: Lauren@hso.org
The Young People’s Concert will also be performed this Saturday morning, and families are invited to attend for free. Starting at 9:30AM, there will be pre-concert activities such as face painting for kids, an instrument petting zoo, as well as other crafts for kids to work on. Families will also have the chance to meet the conductor. The free concert begins at 11AM.
