Hope you can attend at least one of the two exciting Powell Hall Educational Concerts this 2017-18 year!
The 2017-18 Educational Concerts at Powell Hall that SHARE will attend as a group are:
Athletes of the Orchestra
Wednesday, October 18, 2017 at 11:00 am
Dress Circle Box Section
Did you know that the musicians in an orchestra are athletes? They practice to keep getting better, they warm up and cool down before and after they play, they are led by their coach, the conductor, and it takes teamwork to score the perfect performance and win. Students will be introduced to the four families of instruments and discover the teamwork needed to hit a home run on the concert hall stage.
SHOSTAKOVICH Festive Overture
REINEKE Casey at the Bat
STRAUSS Thunder and Lightning Polka
WILLIAMS Olympic Fanfare
Up Close: Mendelssohn
Wednesday, February 21, 2018 at 11:00 am
Grand Tier Section
Join the St. Louis Symphony as we explore the life and music of one of the greatest romantic composers, Felix Mendelssohn. Together we uncover how a young man absorbed his own experiences with identity and culture into his music-music that still resonates with us today.

MENDELSSOHN Wedding March from Midsummer Night's Dream
