Music for Young Listeners Concert

Each season, the Civic Symphony of Green Bay is pleased to offer our “Music for Young Listeners” concert, a morning concert program specifically designed to educate and entertain young listeners. We look forward to filling the Walter Theatre at St. Norbert College with students from local school groups and home schools in our community!

2024 YL Concert




New for 2024! We are offering two morning performances of the "Music for Young Listeners" concert on Friday, February 16 to better accommodate school schedules and groups with longer travel times. Doors open 30 minutes before the concert starts, and each concert will be 40 minutes in length. Please indicate your time preference.

As of 10/4/23:

  • 9:30 concert - 39% capacity

The Walter Theatre has eight (8) ADA accessible wheelchair spaces and additional adjacent seats for ADA companions. Please indicate whether you need a wheelchair space or seating on an aisle to accommodate a walker, etc. We will do our best to keep your entire group seated together. Please include these seats in your total seats needed above. Walter Theatre seating chart


Help us plan ahead by letting us know if your group will arrive by bus or car. Buses will drop students off in front of the building and then park offsite. The parking lots are shared with St. Norbert College staff and students, so carpooling is very much appreciated. Please take your best guess/estimate for number of cars or buses.

In January, the Civic Symphony of Green Bay will provide a Learning Guide teachers may use in their classrooms to prepare students for the "Music for Young Listeners" concert. In addition, our musicians volunteer their time to travel to local schools for presentations and instrument demonstrations in January and February. For smaller/homeschool groups, we offer an in-person educational presentation at a library in the Green Bay area in early February (date/location to be determined). This library presentation will also be livestreamed and available for replay on our YouTube channel at your convenience.


All purchases are nonrefundable. If you have questions, please contact the education committee at before submitting your reservation.
