Educational Outreach

The Glens Falls Symphony believes in the importance of sharing orchestral music with the students of our region and offers $5 concert tickets to students who are actively pursuing music. Non-music students can take advantage of reasonably priced tickets ($10) to concerts.

The Symphony strives to create outreach opportunities and educational programming within the community and around the region, bringing musicians and visiting composers to schools and other venues. Most recently, the Symphony was proud to host visiting composer Christopher Theofanidis, whose brand new work Dreamtime Ancestors, was performed in the November 2016 concert. Mr. Theofanidis spent a day with music students at Hudson Fall High School, introducing them to the world of music composition. Additionally, Mr. Theofanidis and Maestro Charles Peltz conducted an informative talk open to the public, at the Crandall Library on November 4, 2017.

For many years, the Glens Falls Symphony Children’s Chorus has been a beloved and rewarding program that opened the world of choral singing to local youngsters. The Children’s Chorus is currently on a hiatus.

Concert for Children

On April 18, 2019, 870 school children from Hudson Falls, Fort Ann, Hartford and Glens Falls enjoyed the sounds of the orchestra at Hudson Falls High School. Maestro Charles Peltz and the orchestra, along with narrator Evania Osepa from WMHT, brought the classic symphonic fairy tale Peter and the Wolf to life in an engaging and delightful performance.
