Canton Symphony Orchestra’s Young People’s Concerts

The Canton Symphony Orchestra is proud to present, “Measuring Music”, for this season’s Young People’s Concerts.  The Young People’s Concerts (YPC) are a chance for some of our youngest fans to experience a live orchestra concert, while learning important mathematical concepts and enjoying the music. This year the dates for the Young People’s Concerts are on October 16 and 17, at 9:45am and 11am each day.

Each year the Canton Symphony Orchestra uses the Young People’s Concert to explore a different educational concept for young audience members in grades 3-5. This year the program focuses on Ohio’s Learning Standards for English Language Arts as well as Music.  The CSO will demonstrate how music and math are related and intertwined through a full orchestral performance.
