NY State Guidelines in relation to this concert:

  1. The conductor will interact with the audience throughout the concert asking students to make decisions based on what they hear

  2. Students will have the opportunity to use art materials and resources if teachers choose to submit works of art and poetry for projection during the concert

  3. Students will respond to the pieces of music during the concert as well as any pre/post work teachers choose to do

  4. Students will learn how music is a reflection of culture and our world by gaining understanding of music as its own language

About the Intermediate Concert Series
Each year the RPO offers performances for 4th-6th graders at the Eastman Theatre. Students are bused in from all over the Greater Rochester Area to enjoy a one-hour, age-appropriate concert designed to connect orchestral music to the intermediate curriculum. In this way, children learn about music in a cultural and historical context.
