Through the Telescope: Youth Education Concert
In today’s world of instant technology, witnessing the creation of live music, especially in a symphonic setting, is a new experience. Due to COVID precautions, we were unable the last 2 years to have an in-person concert for the area schools. We are thrilled to be able to continue the tradition of students coming to the Julie Rogers Theatre to hear the Symphony of Southeast Texas!
Learning theory supports the strong relationship between math, science and music, so our outreach is to help bridge those learning centers with hope of creating an awareness and appreciation for great music. We want children to experience classical music and truly see and hear how exciting it can be!
This year’s program, Through the Telescope, takes a look at images from the Hubble Space Telescope and how music has interpreted space and its relationship to what the Hubble has uncovered. The heavens above have inspired artists, writers, and musicians for thousands of years. This concert, presented in collaboration with the Space Telescope Science Institute, features music by Wolfgang Mozart, James Lee III, Gustav Holst, John Williams, and more along with captivating visuals from the Hubble Space Telescope!
There will be 2 concerts at the Julie Rogers Theatre on April 5 at 9:30am and 11:00am. Participation is free but you do need to register. See reservation form below.
These concerts are free of charge through the generous support of our sponsors
