The Young People’s Concert supports the mission of the WFSO by working collaboratively with educators to provide a live concert experience to area 5th graders in a real concert hall setting. The concert is held at Memorial Auditorium and takes place during the regular school day. The WFSO also provides a unique curriculum companion to the Young People’s concert, designed to enhance the overall concert experience.
The Wichita Falls Symphony Orchestra invites all of your 5th grade students, to join us for 45 minutes of fine music. The music director will introduce the instruments of the orchestra in the string, wind, brass, and percussion families. ADMISSION IS FREE in fulfillment of the WFSO’s mission to enrich, educate and entertain diverse audience in the Texoma community. We hope to foster an interest in live symphonic and choral music. A curriculum program has been developed to accompany this concert and is available on this page.
