Each year, Maestro Kevin Rhodes and the Springfield Symphony Orchestra welcome elementary and middle school students to Springfield Symphony Hall for a special performance of classical music - with a dash of education and a liberal sprinkling of fun. The program includes curriculum materials, a Teacher Resource Guide and Student Newsletters.
