Young People’s Concerts

The NHSO presents Young People’s Concerts for over 8,000 students across the State of Connecticut each year!

These educational concerts introduce students to musical instruments, genres, and composers.  The NHSO travels to Milford, Seymour, Shelton, and Woodstock to present performances in partnership with each school district.  We always present the annual Young People’s Concert for the Greater New Haven community at Woolsey Hall, and we invite you to join us.
