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 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. All ECS programs offer accompanying teacher resource tools to classrooms who purchase tickets or register to watch webcasts online.

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