Rockford Symphony Orchestra

The Rockford Symphony Orchestra’s annual youth concerts invite students to participate in a hands-on music curriculum. With the help of the Symphony’s teaching materials, teachers can introduce their students to the world of classical music, culminating in a trip to an orchestra concert in May, where the class will get to play along with the orchestra on recorders. The Symphony Goes to School program, approximately 1 hour, brings orchestra musicians to the classroom. Students get to learn about the history of the different instruments and how they work, hear a performance, and have a Q&A session.
