Young People's Concert

Wednesday, March 08



Join Empire State Youth Orchestra on Wednesday, March 8, 2023 for a special nature-themed performance featuring Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring. This annual tradition returns after two years of cancellations.

Students will follow along on a forest adventure, assisting the wacky and whimsical Guardian of the Forest to remember the magical melody that will help him find his way home. Audience goers will delight in the antics, while at the same time learning about the impressive talents of Copland with excerpts from his work. This funny, educational, and interactive performance is not to be missed!

As always, the program, which is appropriate for students in elementary and early-middle school, will include an introduction to the instruments and musical interactions with the orchestra.

Pre-concert material will be available soon. Check back here soon for a free download of the Educator’s Guide.
