Las Vegas Philharmonic’s annual Youth Concert Series (YCS) is one of the most impactful music education programs benefiting students of the Clark County School District (CCSD). For 20 years, this program has provided much-needed, free classical music experiences to approximately 250,000 children, approximately 70 percent of whom attend Title 1/At-Risk elementary schools. The series is one of the cornerstones of our outreach and education initiatives. Prior to attending the youth concerts, third and fourth grade teachers receive a detailed curriculum guide developed through collaboration between Music Director Donato Cabrera, the LVP’s education staff, and CCSD elementary music teachers. This standards-based curriculum links music students will hear at the YCS concerts with topics in science, math, language arts, and social studies. The 2019-20 YCS will enable nearly 23,000 students to experience the concert series.
Upcoming Youth Concert Series dates:
Tuesday, October 29 – Thursday, October 31, 2019
Tuesday, February 11 – Friday, February 14, 2020
