Inspired by a well-known series called “What Every 1st (2nd, 3rd…) Grader Should Know” by E. D. Hirsch, the Core Knowledge Sequence and the BBC series “Ten Pieces,” this concert program attempts to answer the question: what are the important compositions that we want every student to hear? What are the best pieces for getting young listeners interested in music? This 50-minute performance will introduce listeners to the “classics” of orchestral music. The concert repertoire, curated with the help of Richmond Symphony musicians and local music educators, features the works of art that every child should have the opportunity to hear. Featured composers include Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Dvořák, Copland, Rossini, and more.
