Young Persons’ Concert: Grades 3–8
The Harrisburg Symphony presents two pairs of Young Persons’ Concerts each season, normally one in the fall and one in the spring. The programs are designed for students in grades 3-8 who come to the Forum in downtown Harrisburg from all over the capital region and beyond. School groups arrive at the Forum by bus, by van, by car, and on foot to participate in one of two 45-minute performances.
The purpose of the Harrisburg Symphony Youth Orchestras is to enrich the lives of young people within a musical community. We provide the finest possible training, practice and performance opportunities, enabling our students to learn, share and enjoy the power of music.
Since it’s inception in 1931, the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra has participated in the musical tradition of providing outdoor, community entertainment. In the days around the 4th of July, our all-professional orchestra performs in a variety of community settings.
Gather your friends and loved ones, grab blankets or lawn chairs, and join us for at least one of the concerts in our FREE Summer Concerts Series.
