YOUTH CONCERTS: A MUSICAL MENAGERIE
Thursday, October 15, 2015 at 10am and 11:30am, Old Cabell Hall

Our popular annual event for 4th and 5th grade students, this year's Youth Concerts, conducted by Music Director Kate Tamarkin, promise amazing animal encounters in a variety of habitats. Symphony Executive Director Janet Kaltenbach will lead you on a hike along the river, through the forest, into a pasture and nearby barnyard... and through the jungle! You'll meet all the instrument families in the orchestra and hear how famous composers have used them to create the sounds of a cuckoo (Beethoven), a bumblebee (Rimsky-Korsakov), an elephant (Saint Saens) a band of horses (Rossini) and more!

Tickets are only available through advance reservations by your child's school.  For more information, visit our Youth Concert page.

The 2015 Youth Concerts are generously sponsored by the Charlottesville Symphony Society, the Mr. and Mrs. James L. Brown Fund for Youth Concerts, Wells Fargo the McIntire Department of Music at the University of Virginia.
