Free Program:

Thanks to the generosity of many foundations, sponsors, and individuals, participation in the annual KSO Youth Concert program is free of charge to schools. (Value: $7 per student!)

About the Program:
A note about the program from Mr. Daniel (Maestro Daniel Brier, Interim Music Director) is coming soon. Check back for more! 

Preparing for a great concert experience:

Preparing your students for the concert is important, and we've made it easy! A team of professional music teachers and KSO staff have designed learning materials to introduce students to the music and composers. These lessons support the overall music curriculum and are aligned with Michigan Standards and Benchmarks and GLCEs. A curriculum guide, including lesson plans, activities, and previews, will be mailed when we receive your registration form. We also will send out multiple electronic resources, including links, video lessons, and online material, during the fall! When students are familiar with the music, the live concert becomes an exciting, culminating experience!

Busing Assistance:

Partial busing reimbursement is offered to help make this field trip possible. You will receive a form later, but for your planning, the scholarship is as follows:

  • KRESA schools: Schools pay $25 per bus, and Education for the Arts will provide the remainder of the balance.
  • Non-KRESA schools: $1 per student, not to exceed 50% of total cost of trip (provided by KSO).


Registration: Registration begins August 26 and closes November 1.
