One of the DPO’s longest-standing traditions!  These concerts give students the opportunity to hear the exciting sounds of a full orchestra in the acoustically perfect Schuster Center.  Students also learn how music connects to many areas of their classroom curriculum.  Teachers receive a study guide and a CD of concert excerpts.  At no charge, docents (if available) come to your school to prepare students for the concert.

Nature in Music 
Thunderstorms, animals, the seasons, and natural wonders—hear how composers have captured in music the beauty and grandeur of the world around us through the exciting sounds of the orchestra. This concert also features the winner of the 2017 Young Musicians Concerto Competition.
Conductor: Patrick Reynolds
Curriculum Connections: Language Arts, Music and Social Studies

Kaleidoscope Across America 
The grandeur and beauty of America has captured the imagination of composers from the United States as well as those from other countries. DPO Conductor Neal Gittleman will take your students on a musical journey across our great nation and will explore what makes music sound distinctly "American." This concert will also feature guest artists from Dayton Opera and Dayton Ballet II.
