But the Music Spoke…Beethoven’s Story
A FREE Concert

On Saturday, September 26 at 10:00 a.m. in St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, members of the Helena Symphony Orchestra open this Season’s Education Concert Series with the first Symphony Kids concert.  This concert is only available as a livestream.  There will be no audience.  Created for children ages 5 to 10, Symphony Kids is a free 35-minute concert for audiences of all ages and their and their families.  As one of the Symphony’s educational programs, Symphony Kids brings the power of live instrumental music into the hearts of children with specific concerts designed to introduce them to the world of music and instruments.

But the Music Spoke…Beethoven’s Story. “Ever yours. Ever mine. Ever ours.”  Written to his unidentified love, Beethoven’s music continues to be full of emotional excitement and energy.  “Live instrumental music is a wonder to discover,” says Barb Berg, Symphony Education Coordinator and writer of the Symphony Kids programs.  These concerts each offer an important life lesson, and this performance teaches the ever-meaningful lesson that music speaks to our problems and challenges.”

“These concerts are designed to make a personal and relevant connection with the children, and we are thrilled to offer these fun, imaginative, and interactive performances by the Symphony musicians and narrators,” explains Berg.  “This introduction of classical music to children becomes a friendship that lasts a lifetime.”

The children (or their parents) can download an activity book for the concert at https://www.helenasymphony.org/sk1  This will allow them to interact and enjoy up-close and personal performances meant to enrich and enhance music education in the Helena area.
