CHILDREN’S CONCERT SERIES

PBS develops, performs, and funds its Children’s Concert Series exposing our youth and future generations to the arts and symphonic music in Palm Beach County. The program has become a tradition in our community and has  seen exponential growth each year. Through the experience of a live symphony orchestra, children are not only receiving musical education, but they are also building a foundation for the appreciation and respect of music and the arts.

SIDE-BY-SIDE CONCERTS

Side-by-Side concerts create the opportunity for aspiring music students to play alongside professional musicians. When students see first-hand how professional musicians work in their industry, it allows unique insight and perspective they can use for future performances.

MASTERCLASS, LECTURE DEMOS AND COACHING

In masterclasses, a student performs for the musician, usually in front of a class, and the musician provides the student with feedback. In lecture demonstrations, the musician may perform a few pieces and speak about the music, the instrument, the composer, their own life as a musician, etc. The purposes of these lecture demonstrations are for students to become familiar with the instruments of the orchestra, the musicians, and the music they perform. During coaching sessions, students split into sectionals with their respective PBS instrument instructor where they study technique, tone, intonation, and musical ideas. During the last fifteen minutes of the class, the students come back together as a group and work on ensemble balance with PBS musicians playing alongside them.

STEAM NIGHTS

PBS collaborates with the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium in their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) nights currently being implemented with the Palm Beach County public school system. By incorporating the musical arts, PBS provides additional music activities, transforming STEM to STEAM (adding the A for Arts).

EDUCATION AND TEACHER RESOURCES

One of PBS’s goals is to create opportunities for music education in the community, and sometimes these opportunities come in the form of assisting struggling music programs in our county schools. We refurbish and donate orchestral instruments and provide opportunities for PBS musicians to assist in the classroom.

STUDENT PERFORMANCE OPPORTUNITIES

Performing in front of an audience is important for an aspiring musician. We provide as many all-student performance opportunities for our PBS events as possible throughout the season.

Instrument Donation and Refurbishment Program

With your support, we can refurbish an instrument that will be put into the hands of a student.

Ensure that there is one instrument for every child.
