Join us for an engaging learning experience rooted in the beauty of a live performance at the Winspear Centre. Education Concerts introduce elementary students to the exciting world of symphonic music with the opportunity to see and hear the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra performing specially programmed concerts filled with a wide-range of musical concepts. Designed with the Alberta curriculum in mind, educators will receive a comprehensive study guide with ready-made lesson plans and activities before the concert to prepare students for the repertoire performed in the concert. Have fun experiencing real-world applications of musical learning objectives and bring your class this year for this memorable field trip.
