Bon Voyage! Join us for a musical journey to Paris at our Concerts for Kids! Concerts for Kids is our educational outreach concert that allows school children throughout central Illinois to experience LIVE classical music.

The Illinois Symphony Orchestra and our two musical tour guides—George Gershwin and the Chevalier de Saint-Georges—invite you to join us for a Parisian adventure! With your passport in hand, we will head across the Atlantic to the jazzy grooves of Gershwin’s American in Paris. Projections guide us as we stroll the streets of the French capital, encountering a street singer, popping into the Paris Ballet to hear a rehearsal, and even joining a street parade on the Champs-Élysées. If we are lucky, the Chevalier may even give us a demonstration of his famed fencing prowess, to the tune of his own music. And for the finale, we won’t just enjoy the sights and sounds of Paris but might even have a small taste. Bon voyage!
