Education Concert

The annual Education Concert takes place in the fall at the Star Plaza Theater in Merrillville, Indiana. This concert features the Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra performing selected works for a young audience. These concerts target elementary and middle school students. Prior to the concert provide learning materials for the teachers, students and parents. These materials will prepare the younger and older audience members for the concert by giving background information on the composers, the musicians and the music.

In 2017, the Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra led by Maestro Kirk Muspratt, presents a concert celebrating Spanish and South American culture. This years’ selections include music by composers from Spain, France, Mexico and the United States. The Symphony, with the help of the Youth Orchestra, will feature each instrument family and show the variety of sounds in the orchestra. Students will also hear a variety of genres celebrating different cultures with music by Albeniz, Bizet, Copland and De Falla. This concert is a great opportunity for students to learn about Mexico and the important cultural impact from Spain.
