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 was a beloved and rewarding program that opened the world of choral singing to local youngsters. The Children’s Chorus is currently on a hiatus for the 2019-2020 season.
