Sounds Of Summer Educational Series

Who doesn’t love the summertime? With activities like swimming and playing outdoors coupled with seemingly endless days, summer can truly be one of the best times of the year!

Throughout the month of July, the Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra is excited to present its new “Sounds of Summer” educational series. This series is specifically geared toward elementary school students in kindergarten through fifth grade and will teach us all how we can embrace the hot temperatures by using music to learn about summer weather, activities, and more!

This series will feature some of the talented musicians of the Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra as they present short performances at various locations throughout the community. Each performance will revolve around a specific summer theme and will include online student activities to complete following each performance.

Through this series, the Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra aims to:

  • Maintain a high level of community engagement with students and their families throughout the orchestra’s off-season.
  • Help students discover music associated with special summertime activities and occasions.
  • Guide students through explorations of musical examples that support other disciplines.

Feel free to attend these performances in person or listen back at your convenience on the Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra’s website. Performance videos and student activities will be available for download on this page.

We hope that you will join us and learn more about the “Sounds of Summer” with the Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra!
