The Children’s Concert is a special Masterworks concert at the Peace Center designed for elementary school students. Each season 3,000 Greenville County elementary and home-schooled students hear the symphony for free.

The Children’s Concert includes two 45-minute full orchestra performances conducted by Maestro Edvard Tchivzhel. For many students, this exceptional school field trip is their first opportunity to hear classical music the way it’s meant to be heard: live and in-person.
