Presented by Michelin North America, the Michelin Children’s Concert is our biggest educational outreach program each year, and provides the authentic cultural experience of attending a Masterworks Series concert in the grand Peace Center Concert Hall to 3,000 – 4,000 Greenville County elementary and home-schooled students free of charge. Click here for more information on this year’s concert on November 4, 2016.
The Michelin Children’s Concert partnership includes two 45- to 50-minute full orchestra performances (89 GSO musicians participated lin 2015) conducted by Maestro Edvard Tchivzhel, with a special classical repertoire coordinated with what the orchestra is already doing that season and designed with primarily fourth- and fifth-graders in mind. Additionally, six lucky students are selected from the “Tchivzhel Challenge” and get to conduct the GSO during this concert!
For many students, this exceptional school field trip is their first opportunity to attend the Upstate’s premiere, six-acre performing arts center downtown. While there is no charge to participants, schools that are not Title I must negotiate their own transportation. All Title I schools are paid for in full. In 2015, we served 19 public schools — 11 of which were Title I.
