About the Program

In this family-friendly concert, we pay homage to teachers—and the students they nurture—by highlighting some famous student-teacher composer duos. Haydn was Beethoven’s teacher; Dvořák and Burleigh taught each other; and Nadia Boulanger, who conducted the premiere of Stravinsky’s “Dumbarton Oaks” Concerto, was Maestro Neal’s teacher! Join us and raise your hands for those who impart wisdom and shape our futures.
