YOUNG PEOPLES CONCERTS
The JSO presents at least two free concerts for area fifth grade students every spring. The concerts introduce these young audiences to the instruments and sounds of the orchestra. Teachers interested in bringing students to these concerts should call the JSO office early in the school year.
The 2018 Young People's concerts will take place on March 27, 2018. We welcome nearly 2,000 area 5th-graders to the Pasquerilla Performing Arts Center.
