Young People’s Concerts

Yesterday I had the wonderful opportunity to attend a Young People’s Concert put on by our Wichita Symphony Orchestra. I have been organizing a group of homeschoolers to attend for several years now and this was by far the best production I’ve ever seen!

Here’s a shot from our seats in the box! After some young students from the youth symphonies performed Bach, and a mime enacted visual entertainment for a Rossini overture, the part I was most excited about commenced – Carnival of the Animals!

It was even better than I could have imagined! The Ogden Nash narration was included in the performance and a troupe of dancers did a masterful job portraying each selection. The coolest one was The Aquarium with its use of black lighting for an amazing visual effect!

If your area has a Young People’s Concert program, I highly encourage you to check it out!

Share and enjoy!
