Young People’s Concert for Garland ISD

“For our society to move forward, for our culture to survive, fine arts education must remain strong. We already know that kids who study music do better in physics and math. Teaching the fine arts is a rounding of the whole development of the student.”
– Representative Rob Eissler, House Public Education Committee Chair

The Garland Symphony Orchestra provides concerts for young people through their Young People’s Concerts for Garland ISD. These concerts are a part of an age-specific, arts integrated curriculum designed to enhance and supplement the arts education programs of the participating school district.
