School Concert

What is the School Concert?

Since 1969 the Utah Valley Symphony has hosted 'School Concerts' for Utah Valley school age children to experience a classical music concert in a friendly, inviting way. Children of ALL ages will enjoy this concert!

Our conductor designs this annual 45 minute concert in a format that brings classical music to a level in which children of all ages can understand.

What can we expect?

The format of the 45 minute concert goes as follows.

  1. Welcome by a member of the orchestra
  2. Concertmaster (1st Chair, 1st Violin) stands up to have the orchestra tune
  3. Conductor comes on stage and will lead the music as well as engage the students in discussion about the music, the orchestra, and young musicians.

Other notes for teachers

  • Have children wear best dress or Sunday clothes
  • Review early these Concert Etiquette 101 by Robert Bedont
  • Home school parents: as a courtesy to audience and performers, do not bring children under 6 years old. Music will get loud, and can be startling to younger children, which will then cry, disturbing the performers and audience. Please use your discretion.
