Elementary Youth Concert
Tuesday, November 15, 2016
On Tuesday, November 15, 2016, the Eugene Symphony will present an elementary youth concert exploring what it means to compose and create music, while also showcasing the achievements of young musicians and young composers throughout history and today.
iCompose: the Future of Music will include works by famous composers in their earliest years, such as Mozart and Bizet, a young soloist performing with the orchestra, and Eugene Symphony’s Ode to the Future composition, a year-long composition project for young Oregon composers working with University of Oregon Composition Professor Robert Kyr to co-create a new piece. The concert will also introduce students to the building blocks of composing by encouraging the audience to participate in creative music-making at the concert.
Fee: $5.00 per student or adult. One chaperone per fifteen students will be admitted for free and scholarships are available. You will receive a confirmation email, which will include your payment amount, shortly after your registration form is received.
