The MSO’s Fall Youth Concerts reach nearly 5,000 students each year. These concerts enrich, engage, and inspire through themed, multi-dimensional performances that include coordinating visual images, introductions to the compositions, and inspiring performances by the students’ peers — the winners of the annual Fall Youth Concerto Competition.
