LaRita Boren Children’s Concert

Thank you to the 700 school children and adults who attended the LaRita Boren Children’s Concert on Tuesday, October 11, 2022! We hope to see you again next year! Check this page for updates about the 2023 concert.

The LaRita Boren Children’s Concert is an annual event supported by the Boren Foundation. Orchestra Indiana is proud to carry on this tradition begun by the former Marion Philharmonic Orchestra. The Children’s Concert is especially designed to introduce elementary school children from Grant County and surrounding areas to orchestral music. It is a free concert that is also open to the general public!

The concert annually features a side-by-side performance by the orchestras of Taylor University and Indiana Wesleyan University, joined by professional musicians from Orchestra Indiana. Each year the concert features a new theme, with selections of classical music appropriate for young audiences.

Please contact Dr. James Thompson, Education Coordinator, with any questions about this free concert at 765-216-0970 or
