School

The Rockford Symphony Orchestra’s annual youth concerts invite students to participate in a hands-on music curriculum. With the help of the Symphony’s teaching materials, teachers can introduce their students to the world of classical music, culminating in a trip to an orchestra concert in May, where the class will get to play along with the orchestra on recorders. The Symphony Goes to School program, approximately 1 hour, brings orchestra musicians to the classroom. Students get to learn about the history of the different instruments and how they work, hear a performance, and have a Q&A session.

Theater Lesson Plan

FUN FACTS

Throughout the ages, theater has been used to record history, depict religious stories, spread information and even propaganda. Theater began in 500 B.C. in Greece. Today, Broadway shows alone sell over $1 billion worth in tickets and support 85,000 jobs – everyone from the playwright, to the sound technician, to the set designer. When visiting the theater, discuss what jobs people can have at the theater and the process of producing a stage play. Ask if the show offers Q&A or behind the scene opportunities.
