In June, United Arts awarded the Orlando Philharmonic a $2,500 mini grant to bring the orchestra’s Notes in Your Neighborhood program to the Boys and Girls Club of Central Florida’s Walt Disney World Clubhouse, located West of downtown Orlando.
Students at Osceola County School District perform “The Star Spangled Banner” at the concert. More photos here.
Each year, over 55,000 elementary students across Central Florida experience the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra’s “Young People’s Concerts” at Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre in downtown Orlando. An annual Central Florida tradition, the concerts provide students the opportunity to experience a live performance of symphonic music, opera and ballet while learning about their core subjects. This year, thanks to funding from United Arts of Central Florida, the State of Florida Division of Cultural Affairs, and the Osceola County School Board, every 5th grade student in the Osceola County School District will see the 2013 Young People’s Concert, “Heroes & Legends” for free on Tuesday, November 5th at the Osceola County School for the Arts in the Osceola Performing Arts Center. It’s the first time students have been able to see the orchestra in their own neighborhood.
