Young People’s Concerts

Young People’s Concerts, or “YPC’s” as we like to call them, are performed for area third through eighth grade students every fall and winter, reaching approximately 25,000 students and their teachers each year. These 40-minute programs feature the full Wichita Symphony Orchestra and often utilize actors or dancers to illustrate the program. For many students, these fun and educational concerts represent their first experience with live symphonic music in Century II Concert Hall.

2017-2018 Young People's Concerts - COMING SOON!

We will announce our full 2017-2018 season in late February, early March, and will reveal our YPC programming at the same time. In the mean time save the dates for our upcoming YPC programs:

FALL November 7 - 9
WINTER January 23 - 25

How to Attend

Students register through their schools in early fall for both concerts. The cost for both concerts is $9 for students whose schools arrange their own transportation and $12 for students who ride buses arranged by the Wichita Symphony. The Wichita Symphony only arranges buses for USD 259 and Wichita private schools. All other school districts must make their own bus arrangements. Teachers may click on the above links for materials to utilize in preparing students for each program.
