SendChildtoSymphony_image_freeText_forWeb_feb18A lifelong love of music starts here! Join the Dearborn Symphony Orchestra for a concert designed to introduce young people, grades 3, 4 and 5, to the orchestra. According to Lisa Meyer, Dearborn Music Resource Teacher, this fun and enriching Children’s Concert is a “tremendous educational and cultural opportunity for our young people” and “helps schools fulfill the National standards and Michigan benchmarks for music education.”

Dearborn Symphony Music Director, Kypros Markou, and Dearborn music teachers Jim Walters and music resource teacher, Lisa Meyer have developed another fun and enriching experience. Jim Walters, a Dearborn instrumental music and choral teacher will narrate the program. This program originally began for just Dearborn’s 4th graders. It has become so popular, that our audience now includes students from neighboring districts, and private and home schoolers. Seating is limited; reserve today. Group seating is available.

Cost: $5 per person (student or chaperone).
