Harrisburg-Symphony-Concert-TicketsWelcome to the concert

For elementary and middle School-Age students

Welcome to the Concert is a free Masterworks Concert activity for elementary and middle school-age students during intermission. It provides useful tools to enhance the concert experience.

The Harrisburg Symphony’s Education Department prepares lesson plans, informative hand-outs, and a mini-workshop for each young concert-goer who wishes to attend. The program is presented in the lobby of the Forum, outside section 309.

Recent Welcome to the Concert activities have included:

  • making and decorating violins
  • creating bandanas with repetitive patterns to celebrate the performance of Aaron Copland’s Billy the Kid Suite
  • creating the floral tribute bouquet presented on-stage to a guest soloist
  • painting a 15-foot mural with beautiful scenes (reminiscent of the majestic landscape depicted in Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 3.)

Often a highlight of the 15-20 minute Welcome to the Concert session is a visit with one of the musicians or the guest artist.

Families are also drawn to the HSO’s Masterworks concerts because the Symphony offers a deeply discounted subscription for the entire season. The Musical Chairs program offers a $42 per seat subscription for families with school-age (K-12) children.
