Feb 01, 2017 — Feb 02, 2017

12,000 4th and 5th grade students of the Long Beach Unified School District and select Wilmington schools are bused to the Long Beach Performing Arts Center Terrace Theater for the opportunity to experience the orchestra LIVE in the concert hall. Programming is selected to align with the curriculum students are studying in their classrooms to help them make connections between music, math, science and history. The concert also has a side-by side performance aspect including the LBUSD All-District High School Orchestra or Choir. The most exceptional student musicians in the Long Beach Unified School District are invited to perform on stage alongside the musicians of the Long Beach Symphony Orchestra for the Symphony Concerts for Young People. This rare and very exciting opportunity gives these special students an inside look at how a professional orchestra operates, and the expectations they need to reach to pursue a professional career in music.
