Made possible in part by the Penny and Harold Blumenstein Future Audiences Fund

The Detroit Symphony Orchestra's Educational Concert Series (ECS) has introduced students to classical music for more than 80 years. Each 45-minute ECS performance is thematically designed to explore topics like science, history, and art through orchestral music. ECS performances take place in historic Orchestra Hall and are webcast for free via the Live from Orchestra Hall: Classroom Edition series.

ECS performances are recommended for students in 3rd through 8th Grade.
