This free hub of youth concert resources is brought to you by the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and our wonderful sponsors, for use during the 2020-21 school year. Instead of presenting full-length youth concerts, the videos each contain one piece of repertoire for ease of use. Content is divided into five thematic units and each has an accompanying suggested lesson plan.
In addition to some beloved classics of the orchestra like Carnival of the Animals and Peter and the Wolf, we are proud to present a diverse offering of composers and guest artists. Our resources currently include seven American composers, three of which are living; two living women composers, four BIPOC composers; 5 BIPOC guest artists and 4 youth soloists.
“We are really proud to offer this education hub to our school community during this challenging year. Music can educate but it can also uplift and inspire our students. We miss seeing their faces in Kleinhans! However, we hope in the meantime we can provide this resource while everyone stays safe.”
-Jaman E. Dunn, assistant conductor
