Young People's Concert
2nd Grade - 8th Grade
Jazz and Classical music join the stage together for LPO's The Orchestra Swings. Young People's Concerts target 2nd through 8th grade students.
The LPO partners with Carnegie Hall's Link Up program for these concerts, which offers students the opportunity to sing or play along with the LPO on recorders or string instruments.
