UMS 101: Classical Music
New York Philharmonic

Many people had their first experience with orchestral music through watching the New York Philharmonic’s Young People’s Concerts, with 53 episodes aired during its 14-year television run on CBS.

Even though the program is created with children in mind, this concert is also a great educational experience for adults. Learn about the fundamentals of Western classical music, the evolution of the orchestra, and have your questions answered by a genre expert in this introductory workshop, all while enjoying the beautiful music of one of America’s most treasured composers, Leonard Bernstein.

The class will be led by Laura Jackson, an Ann Arbor resident now in her ninth season as music director of the Reno Philharmonic.

After class, participants will attend the New York Philharmonic concert that recreates one of Leonard Bernstein’s Young People’s Concerts. The workshop and UMS 101 session is designed for adults, not children (children are welcome to attend the concert). Must be 16 or older to attend this session.

To participate in UMS 101, you must register through the Rec & Ed website and pay the registration fee (which includes a ticket to the performance).

This event is part of a new collaboration between UMS and Ann Arbor Public Schools Community Education & Recreation (“Rec & Ed”).

Curious about UMS, but haven’t taken the plunge? Want to learn more about an unfamiliar artist or genre? UMS and Ann Arbor Public Schools Community Education & Recreation (“Rec & Ed”) are teaming up to offer pre-performance classes created especially for first-time UMS attendees, for curious audience members, and for anyone who simply enjoys attending performances with a group. Each UMS 101 class will be facilitated by a dance, jazz, or classical music expert and feature conversation, interactive exercises, and mini lectures that will help you better understand the genre and have a more enjoyable UMS performance experience. The classes will bring you together with other audience members who are curious about the performing arts and want to learn more.

Registration for UMS 101 includes a ticket to the performance, workshop fees, transportation to/from the performance venue, and light snacks before the performance.

Class sessions will take place at Pioneer High School, and group transportation will be provided to and from the performance venue via coach. (Sorry, no ticket exchanges or refunds for previously purchased tickets.)
