Designed for students grades 7 through 12, these programs aim to expose older students to large-scale works of the classical repertory.
To further engage high school audiences in the orchestral experience, MSO Assistant Conductor Francesco Lecce-Chong hosts the MSO Teen Series once again in 2013.14. He'll share biographical and repertoire notes from the stage during performances, providing additional context for the music performed. In addition, each student will receive a Teen Guide, specially created for each concert!
