2019-2020 Primary Concert Registration Form

Providing music education to our community is the core of the RPO’s mission. Every year, over 17,000 students sing, clap, stomp, dance, and interact with the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra in specially designed concerts held in the Eastman Theatre and public venues throughout our community. Of these students, 7,500 from the Rochester City School District attend at no charge.  Pre-concert classroom learning materials are provided to enhance and meet New York State curriculum guidelines.

In a culturally vibrant community, it is essential that all citizens, especially the youngest, have access to live arts experiences, regardless of their financial circumstances.

  • Held in Eastman Theatre, the programming is tied to language arts, social studies, and other areas of the students’ curriculum
  • 2 concerts per year in February
