Concerts for Young People, 2018-2019

Introduction

Since 1975, the Fundación Juan March organises a Music Education Programme for students at its headquarters in Madrid, attended by groups of students from primary and secondary schools accompanied by their teachers (prior bookings are required). To date, nearly 840,000 young people have attended over 3,100 educational concerts so far. Presently, these concerts are held on Tuesday mornings, from 11.30 to 12.30, between the months of October and April. Upon request, attendance of these concerts may be combined with a visit to the temporary art exhibition on display at the same time in the Fundación Juan March.

The main goal of these concerts is to stimulate students' aesthetic and musical experience. Currently designed around a specific theme, the concerts are presented by a specialist that provides visual references along the music. There is also a Teacher's Guide, available here, to be used in the classroom in preparation for the concert, containing texts, illustrations, music excerpts, scores and links to related videos on the web.

Under the title "Family concerts", these Educational Concerts are opened to all audiences on two Saturdays in December.
