Teachers and students are invited to attend the Madison Symphony Orchestra’s Spring Young People’s Concert conducted by MSO Associate Conductor, Kyle Knox! The program features stories of ninth symphonies and beyond… and will include selections from Beethoven Symphony No. 9, Shostakovich Symphony Nos. 5 and 9, and Dvorak Slavonic Dances, Op. 46, in addition to the winners of the Bolz Young Artist Competition. The concert is designed for students in grades 6-12.

The Spring Young People’s Concert Curriculum Guide will get students thinking more deeply about the musical selections, creating a richer concert experience. The Guide is now available online and is based on academic standards for music.
