Each year, as part of the BMC’s Music in the Schools Partnership hundreds of school-age children are given an opportunity to experience and enjoy a full symphony orchestra with a performance designed especially for them. For many children, this is their first opportunity to experience a large-scale performance in a big theater. Schools throughout Windham County and surrounding areas are invited to attend.
In advance of the concert teachers are provided materials for possible inclusion in music classes leading up to the performance. These may include study materials about the pieces being performed or actual portions of the concert in which the students are invited to activley participate. Recent participatory components ahve included everything from artwork to actual student compositions.
The program always includes a performance by the winner of the Windham Orchestra's Concerto Competition and a participatory component.
