Education Concerts - Valley Symphony Orchestra

Education Concerts

2022 Education Concerts set for January

The Valley Symphony Orchestra will welcome students and teachers to feel the rhythm again with the Educational Concerts series in January 2022.

In-person programs will be held on Jan. 21 and Jan. 28 at the McAllen Performing Arts Center.

These 40-minute program entitled “The Wild West” will feature music from the classic Western film, The Big Country (1958), hosted by Maestro Peter Dabrowski.

The Children’s Education Concert series was formed in 2000 (formerly called the Rio Grande Valley International Music Festival) to address a need for music education and to provide exposure to the arts to students across the Valley.

For more than 20 years, the Valley Symphony Orchestra has performed for nearly 10,000 students a year across all grades. Through the collaboration of VSO and school districts, students are able to have a traditional, full-scale Symphonic experience at the McAllen Performing Arts Center.

These concerts provide a one-of-a-kind experience that inspires young people to become interested and passionate about music, whether it’s pursuing music independently or becoming an educator and patron of the arts.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the VSO continues to take all necessary precautions to provide safe, interactive programs. Virtual streaming options will continue to be available in 2022 to ensure all students receive critical music exposure and education.
