EDUCATIONAL INITIATIVES

Each year, the Battle Creek Symphony performs free educational concerts for students ranging from 2nd through 12th grade. The Battle Creek Symphony is committed to reach as many students as possible, so the only cost to schools is in transporting students to W.K. Kellogg Auditorium for each age-appropriate concert. Symphony programs have included school-oriented performances of opera, symphonic classics, and multi-discipline programs to fit into schools’ everyday curriculum. In addition, teaching materials are made available in advance of the concerts. These materials are designed to prepare students and teachers for the concert experience as well as the repertoire and musical concepts covered in each program. In-school “Informances,” which bring representatives from The Music Center to individual classrooms, are also available for a nominal fee. Informances are often given by Symphony musicians or guest artists. If you have any questions, feel free to call the Battle Creek Symphony, Operations Manager at 269-963-1911 ext. 2503.
