One of the Brevard Symphony Orchestra core values is education. Arts education is an integral part of the community and we are pleased to offer a variety of programs for both teachers and students.
The Brevard Symphony Orchestra, partnering with the Brevard County School Board and through support received from local foundations and businesses, offers a free symphonic concert at the King Center each February for all 5th grade public school students.
A study guide is developed for all teachers which integrates all learning aspects of a symphony performance from biographies of the composers to seating within the orchestra, performance etiquette and much more. All this information is blended, with musical examples, into class lesson plans. This allows students time, in advance of the concert, to learn about what they will soon be enjoying, therefore enhancing their learning experience. For many students this is their first visit to the King Center for the Performing Arts as well as their first symphonic performance. All Study Guide materials incorporate the Sunshine State Standards and connection to FCAT curriculums.
This concert is also open to private and home school students for a nominal fee. Chaperones are free. Advance reservations are necessary.
