La Crosse Symphony for the Youth

The La Crosse Symphony Orchestra offers a unique musical teaching experience through the annual Symphony for Youth concert program. Each year, over 2,500 students from around the area have the opportunity to attend this concert and experience a professional performance of a musical masterpiece. While listening to the music, the students are also learning about the La Crosse Symphony Orchestra and about symphonies as a whole.  A big thank you to our major sponsor, the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western Wisconsin and Southeastern Minnesota. This year's Symphony for Youth will take place on Wednesday, March 13, 2019 at Viterbo Fine Arts Center

I had a wonderful experience attending the Symphony for Youth concert. This was my first time leading our schools trip to the symphony. I was quite impressed by the organization and easy process, from the reservation of tickets back in November all the way to getting back on our buses after the concert. Historically, the Westby Area School District has brought the 3rd grade class to see the LSO’s Symphony for Youth concert, and I can tell you with confidence that this tradition will continue.
