2017–18: Save the Dates!

Young People’s Concerts are a beloved tradition at the New York Philharmonic, known around the world. Young People’s Concerts for Schools bring you curriculum and training to provide deep musical learning along with connections to other disciplines.

Every seat in David Geffen Hall is a great seat, as the live performance is projected over the orchestra on a big screen. And every participating teacher is empowered to amplify the learning and offer their classrooms’ work for inclusion in the concert.

Teachers receive a free Workshop, curriculum materials tailored to their students’ level, and a CD of the featured music to help prepare students to get the most out of the event.
