Each year over 30,000 students in grades K-12 experience the wonder of live orchestral music through MSO Concerts for Schools. These curriculum-based programs feature great works of the vast symphonic repertoire performed by the professional musicians of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra.
Educational and engaging concert narration, teacher preparation materials, and classroom visits by Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra League docents give students the knowledge needed to grasp the music in greater depth. By understanding works in context, students see ties between music and literature, history, visual art and a variety of cultural influences.
