Young People's Concert

Music conjures images in our minds as we listen. Composers are inspired by what they see in their world from landscapes to movement.

Join us in exploring the visual arts that were instrumental in the creation of some cornerstone classics and some works created to enhance images, action, and films.  The music programs will be available on this site before attending the concert. Students’ inspired creations that can be shared at the concert.
