A living, breathing symphony experience

Come see students from the Decatur Youth Symphony and the Millikin-Decatur Symphony Orchestra perform together and demonstrate how musicians can join their friends to play fun and exciting music as part of a living breathing symphony orchestra. The audience will learn what the members of the group experience while they perform and get a chance to meet many members of the ensemble. Students will also have an opportunity to participate in the performance and experience music from a variety of genres that an orchestra can play, including classical, jazz, contemporary, and folk. They will leave excited about the possibility of playing an instrument themselves and have a greater understanding of what it’s like to play music in a large ensemble.
