Any Given Child with the Juneau Symphony

On Friday, January 27th, Juneau’s fourth and fifth grade students hopped on buses and made their way to the Juneau Douglas High School auditorium for a concert. This wasn’t just any concert, but a special interactive performance by the Juneau Symphony through the Any Given Child education program. Students worked hard to learn songs on the recorder to be able to participate in this concert. Every student in the 4th and 5th grade, with support of music teachers, was able to learn songs in the months preceding the concert event and play along with the Symphony during this interactive show. The program rotates annually between “The Orchestra Sings”  and “The Orchestra Swings” with focus on altering styles of music. This excursion is provided through collaboration with Juneau Symphony and support from Carnegie Hall Link Up and First Student.

The Juneau Arts & Humanities Council raised enough funds over the course of the past summer and fall to allow for this concert to happen. We want to thank the Juneau community for their donations as well as the Juneau School District music teachers. We also couldn’t have done this without the partnership from the Juneau Symphony and Juneau Community Schools. We are grateful for the dedication of many that support arts education within our community.
