Young Persons' Concert on March 9

Young Persons' Concert on March 9

This one-hour concert at Pick-Staiger is the ideal introductory orchestral concert for children 5–13 years, but will also be fun for parents and grandparents. The concert is designed to show the wonderful storytelling nature of music.

The ESO will perform the ever-popular The Sorcerer’s Apprentice by Paul Dukas and also pieces like the Superman March by John Williams, and the delightful Mozart piece for strings only — Eine Kleine Nachtmusik.

Also on the program:

  • Sabre Dance by Aram Khachaturian
  • Blast Off! by Daniel Dorff with our Music in Your World instructor Charles Taylor as guest host and narrator

The highlight of the concert will be when Evanston District 65 students play side by side with Evanston Symphony members on two pieces: The Wild Western Frontier by Soon Hee Newbold and Double Trouble by Lauren Bernofsky.

Please join us also for a special Musical Insights on Wednesday, March 6, at 1:30 pm at The Merion. We will be showing a heart-warming 40-minute documentary about the value of music education for young people, called "The Last Repair Shop." We will also have performances by young students from Evanston.
