The Topeka Symphony has been presenting free school day concerts to students from Northeast Kansas since 1999. This extremely popular concert series plays to capacity student and teacher audiences at the Topeka Performing Arts Center every year.
These concerts are supported by grants and contributions from local businesses and individuals. Over the years, nearly 75,000 students from schools throughout Northeast Kansas have been able to attend these concerts at no cost. A resource packet is made available for teachers to prepare students for this fun and educational experience. For many of these students, this is their first opportunity to experience a live symphony performance as well as their first visit to the Capital city.
THE FREE SCHOOL CONCERTS FOR THE 2019-2020 SEASON WERE HELD ON TUESDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2019
TSO School Day Concerts Information
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be no in-person School Day concerts this season. We plan to videotape a portion of the October 3, 2020 public concert and make the recording available to schools and teachers to use for music classes or other classroom purposes.
If you are interested in receiving information about the video recording, please complete and submit the form at the link below. Please contact the Topeka Symphony office if you have questions.
We plan to be back at the Topeka Performing Arts Center for another set of Free School Day concerts during the 2021-2022 season.
We hope to see you there!
