The Springfield Symphony's 53rd Annual Young People's Concert (YPC) will bring together students from all Springfield R-12 district schools, 50 area school districts, and students from rural, private, parochial, and home schools to listen to live symphonic music and gain valuable exposure to the elements of musical styles and eras. Each of the Young People's Concerts is specifically designed to be an in-depth learning experience.

Two Young People's Concerts are planned for this season on Tuesday, January 24th, 2023 at 10:30 AM and 1:00 PM. On the day of the performance, students and teachers will be treated to an enriching cultural experience. The music is interspersed with entertaining facts about each composition. Musical instrumentation is explained, as are differences in musical styles.

Following each performance, the teachers follow up with each class attending in discussing important elements of the musical experience so as to integrate the concert experience into the students' curriculum.
