Young People’s Discovery Concerts
Each year the South Bend Symphony helps over 5,000 students in grades 3-6 discover the world of music in a fun concert designed especially for them. These interactive concerts are guided from the stage and have a different educational theme each year. Study guides, activities, and reference CDs are provided in advance to help students and teachers prepare for the concert.
This year, the South Bend Symphony Orchestra will be presenting Let Freedom Ring an exploration of American music and Veterans from all branches of the service. Come and join us for a salute to our veterans and the American spirit of Freedom. The performances take place at the Morris Performing Arts Center.
The Side-by-Side Orchestra
This highly sought after experience includes four rehearsals with area teachers, a student rehearsal conducted by the Symphony’s music director, Tsung Yeh, and two rehearsals with the orchestra. Students will be challenged to perform exciting music from the orchestra’s repertoire.
Donald A. Dake Summer Music Academy
The Donald A. Dake Summer Music Academy is designed to challenge high school students who are advanced musicians that play a wind, brass, or string instrument. Students will be coached by musicians from the South Bend Symphony. The week-long academy is held at Saint Mary’s College and includes individual and group instruction, participation in the Academy Orchestra, masterclasses, public performances, and a community outreach tour.
Additionally, a conducting seminar is offered to select students. This unique opportunity gives students a chance to learn how to conduct from the South Bend Symphony’s own Maestro Tsung Yeh. Students will put into practice what they learn by conducting a faculty ensemble.
Want to experience classical music and connect with professional musicians in your community? The South Bend Symphony has ensembles that are available to provide short educational programs, free of charge.
