Memorable, Fun, Engaging Young People’s Concerts Return to Orchestra Hall

We are thrilled to be able to welcome students, teachers and families back to Orchestra Hall for our Young People's Concerts in 2022-2023.

Looking for a music education experience for your students? Young People’s Concerts focus on a specific musical element, composer, time period or theme, and include free online preparation and curriculum materials.

Since 1911, Young People’s Concerts have been at the heart of the Minnesota Orchestra’s efforts to engage and inspire young audiences. Each experience investigates a musical element, composer, time period or theme, and is tailored for students, their teachers and families. See individual programs for age recommendations.

I have been bringing students to your Young People's concerts for many years and love the educational aspect, as well as exposing my students to live classical music played by world-class musicians!”
