Young people’s concert

The Bangor Symphony Orchestra invites students in grades 3 through 8 to attend this year’s Young People’s Concerts at the Collins Center for the Arts: Monday, May 21, 2018 at 9:45 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.

Lucas Richman, Music Director and Conductor for the Bangor Symphony Orchestra, has made it his mission to instill in young children the awareness of music as an integral part of their lives. This year’s concert theme is “Musical Poetry”. The repertoire will highlight the powerful link between music and poetry while exposing and acquainting students with the instruments of the orchestra.
