The Delaware Symphony’s Explorer Concert program is an opportunity for students to experience a live orchestra performance supplemented by in-school materials provided in advance to registered educators.

This year, educators will be provided with 10 lesson outlines and supporting materials for use in their classrooms to prepare students for this concert. All materials will be distributed to educators in early 2024.

  • The first set of plans teaches students what an orchestra is, introduces instrument families, and describes concert etiquette.
  • The second set is specific to this year’s concert and focuses on the countries and music styles traversed in Migrations in Rhythm.
