Children's Concert Series
Each year the ETBU Music Department hosts a Children's Concert featuring the ETBU student and faculty performers. The music selected for these events is chosen for its child-friendly programmability, and for its importance in the total musical development of elementary students. For each concert, educational materials are sent to local music teachers who use this information to enhance student learning and further prepare their students for the event. Students are then invited to submit artwork that is created through the process of learning of the related performance selections. The artwork is then displayed during the concert so the students can enjoy both a visual and auditory experience.
