BRScO: cOmmunity, cOoperation, cOllaboration


Since 1947 the Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra has presented youth concerts of live orchestral music specifically designed to awaken imagination, elicit a passion for music, and excite creativity in the young people of Southern Louisiana.

The theme for our 2016 Discovery concerts is “BRScO: cOmmunity, cOoperation, cOllaboration!”

Did you ever wonder how so many musicians, all playing different instruments and different parts, are able to work together so well?
Can you think of some ways that orchestras partner with other artists to create performances that are more than just music?
Join BRSO to explore the different types kinds of  collaboration that bring music to life, and discover ways that your students can become part of a stronger community through cooperation!
Featuring talented vocal and dance professionals, and of course our own BRSO musicians, this concert celebrates the different perspectives that we gain by working together.

To allow school programs in our area plenty of time to recover and regroup from the recent flooding, the 2016 Young Peoples’ Discovery Concert Series has been postponed until Spring of 2017. 

Please look for communication from BRSO regarding a new schedule for the Discovery concerts.

Teachers and Parents: 

It’s now easier than ever to prepare your students to get the most out of the Discovery concert! BRSO provides lesson plans for each featured composition that can be used or added into an existing curriculum. Discovery handouts (coming soon) are designed for students to take home and read on their own, or to use as an in-class resource accompanying a lesson plan, and include for each composition: listening guide, musician spotlight, an introduction to the composer,  and much more!

Celebrate your School!

BRSO wants to help you share your stories of cooperation and collaboration! Share stories and pictures of activities or programs in which your students have made a difference in their community. Pictures and stories will be shared through a pre-concert slideshow and posted to BRSO’s website. Please submit pictures and stories no later than Friday, October 21. Please contact Scott Miller, Director of Education and Community Outreach for more details.
