Concerts for Students

The Department of Music at the University of Mississippi will offer two orchestra concerts especially for students in elementary grades. The programs, under the direction of Dr. Ronald Vernon, featuring faculty and advanced student performers, are drawn from the department’s regular season programming, but with special introductions and commentary designed to help young people understand and appreciate the music. The first concert of the season will be Monday at 11:30 a.m. at the Ford Performing Arts Center on the UM campus.

Admission is free. Ample bus parking is available. Those planning to send classes to the concerts are asked to call ahead to let the department know how many students will attend because space is limited and reservations are required. For more information or reservations, call 915-1778. (October 15, 2010)
