Youth Concerts

  • The ABCs of Symphonies

    ABCs7Presented in the fall to all children in grades K-3 in the City of Erie public schools - over 6000 students!

    Led by Maestro Kraemer and soprano Leah Schneider, members of the ECO traveled into 11 different elementary schools over the course of 4 days presenting the program "The ABCs of Symphonies." This program featured interactive word games with the students along with a musical presentation of Dr. Seuss' Green Eggs and Ham. A 3 week curriculum was also supplied to all teachers leading up to the concert event complete with detailed worksheets and a resource website with sound files and downloads. A pre- and post-test was also administered to help gauge the overall effectiveness of the program. The ECO looks to return to the schools in the fall of 2014 with a new innovative program.
