Each year, we offer select student matinee performances. These concerts provide a unique opportunity for students and teachers to experience a performance and participate in a talk-back with artists about their work.
All matinees are approximately one hour long, begin at 11am, and include curriculum materials provided to teachers in advance of the performance. Tickets are $10 per person per performance, including students and chaperones.
