Student Matinee Series

The Newman Center’s popular student matinee series features four performances during the 2024-25 season. In addition to the inspiring performances, an in-class curriculum that integrates music, dance, social-emotional learning and core subjects through the lens of the artists featured on stage is experienced. Students have the chance to learn about the artists before they see the show, or investigate a variety of cultures and performers in the classroom. The growing bank of digital curricula for K-12 students includes standard-based lesson plans, learning projects, visual content, worksheets, projects and assessment – everything teachers need for easy implementation. Best of all, it is available free for anyone to use.

“For many of my students, this was the very first concert they had ever attended, and they LOVED it!”
