New Britain Symphony Young People's Concert
Our 23rd Annual 2020 Young People’s Concert that was to be held on April 1, 2020 was canceled due to the coronavirus restrictions. We were disappointed we could not perform this concert for the schoolchildren this year but hope they find music in their lives everyday during this time.
The above picture was the program cover. It was drawn by Analise J. from Lincoln Elementary School in New Britain for our 2019 “What Music Means To Me” poster contest. We select one poster to be the cover for the following year’s concert.
We did select the winners for this year’s “What Music Means To Me” poster and essay contest…plus the 2021 program cover!
