Students and teachers from Portland and beyond arrive at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall eager to experience an Oregon Symphony concert performed just for them! The entire orchestra, along with associate conductor Norman Huynh, give young listeners a memorable musical experience by combining the expansive emotions of classical music with historical and social concepts which relate to their lives today.

Our complimentary teacher’s guide (available in November) and YouTube clips of each composition can be previewed on the Young People’s concert page and in the teacher’s guide! Educators can also arrange for a trained volunteer to visit your class to preview this concert by requesting a docent.
