A Day at the Symphony
Presented by the Merced Symphony Association

 
Merced County students were treated to "A Day at the Symphony". Presented by the Merced Symphony Association, over 3,000 students attended the annual concert over a two day period at two different sides of the county.
The Children's Concerts are formatted and designed to appeal to 4th grade students, although 2nd through 5th grade students were also in attendance.
The goal of the Merced Symphony Association Children's Concert is to introduce students to classical music and pique their interest in taking up an instrument or joining a band when they reach middle school. Informational packets were provided to the teachers ahead of time and they were able to prepare students as to what to listen for and in concert etiquette.
During the concert Conductor Ming Luke used humor and music to teach the students about the instruments, their families and why the seating of the orchestra is so important.
