The Battle Creek Symphony performs free concerts for school children each year at W.K Kellogg Auditorium. This season's concert reached over 3200 elementary school children, and featured Benjamin Britten's Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra, narrated by Jennifer Conley Darling.
Several classrooms drew pictures of instruments in preparation for the concert, and images were projected onscreen during the concert. While we weren't able to project all of the images, we have posted them online for you for your enjoyment.
We hope to present next year's school concerts in March, 2019, as part of Music in our Schools month. If you are interested in your school attending, please contact us or call Battle Creek Symphony Operations at 269.963.1911, ext. 2503.
This past season the Music Center presented over forty outreach activities to area schools, including Ars Voce vocal quartet performances, guest artist performances and clinics, and instrument petting zoos. Adventures in Music is part of our commitment to building community through music. Through our engagement activities we help to light the spark of creativity that could change a child’s life.
If you are interested in having a Music Center outreach in your school, or if you are interested in helping to make these outreaches possible, please contact us at 269.963.1911 ext. 2503.
