Inspire and enchant your students through the power of music with the Long Island Philharmonic’s annual educational concerts for grades one to eight, with a musical tour of our magnificent country, the UNITED STATES. Maestro Wiley and the Orchestra will perform works by Rossini, Morton Gould, Richard Rodgers and others.

These concerts are an imaginative and stimulating educational tool to introduce students to a live symphony orchestra.

Concert Length: 50 minutes

Cost: $8 per student for the study materials; no charge for teachers and chaperones

Participating teachers receive integrated preparatory materials, approximately five to six weeks before the performance. Included are lessons for pre and post-concert study, a CD of the concert music, worksheets and a concert program.

The Harold Bernstein Youth Concerts are dedicated to the memory of leading Long Island businessman and humanitarian Harold P. Bernstein. These concerts are made possible through the generous support of Jill and Jay Bernstein and children.
“Because I attended the Youth concert, I learned that Antonin Dvorak visited New York to help find America’s sound”.
