Education Concerts

Music Memory is a free enrichment program designed to enhance understanding and appreciation of symphonic music. It is designed for elementary grades, and is open to all schools in Maricopa County, public, private, and homeschool. This will be the 61st year of the Music Memory Program, which is made possible with funding provided by the William L. and Ruth T. Pendleton Memorial Fund. Since 1987 they have been this event’s sole supporters.

Each year musical pieces are carefully selected to introduce young audience members to a different types of orchestral music. Teacher guides and student activities are available for teachers to use with their students before attending the concert.

 

For many students the Music Memory concert is their first experience attending a classical symphony concert.

A very special thanks to Ardith Shelley, former Fine Arts Supervisor for the Madison School District, who was instrumental in the development of the Music Memory Program. She served as its chairperson for twenty-one years.
