Bringing Music to the Youth of our Community
Student Field Trips or Young People’s Concerts follow in the 80-year tradition of similarly-named, award-winning presentations by the former San Antonio Symphony. These free-admission concerts for upper elementary grades engage students from around South Texas with carefully-crafted programming of symphonic music and narrative that is targeted to the age group, richly cross-curricular, multi-sensory and interactive, supported by robust educational materials, representative of diversity and diverse backgrounds, and aligned to state teaching objectives
Young People’s Concerts are performed at the highest-quality high school auditoriums around San Antonio in partnership with local public school districts. Special collaborations include Link Up, a program of Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute that encompasses over 100 orchestras and 400,000 students worldwide, as well as the Paint to Music Contest, a popular and long-standing interdisciplinary program of the San Antonio Symphony League.
