Discovery Concert

The Symphony’s Discovery Concert annually provides over 1,000 elementary, middle, and high school students, including homeschoolers, with opportunities to experience a free live symphonic performance. Past Discovery Concerts include a Cirque de la Symphonie performance, Symphony of Illusions featuring master illusionist Michael Grandinetti, Holst’s The Planets with NASA video and images synced to the music, and Dvorak’s Symphony No. 7 with Westwater Arts “Czech Journeys” visual concert showing pictures of the Czech Republic.

The 2023-24 Discovery Concert will take place on Friday, March 22, 2024, at 10:00 am at the historic Miller Theater. This season’s concert will showcase a unique 3D cinematic and musical celebration of our national parks and exciting cities. Learners will be immersed in striking imagery on a giant screen while the Augusta Symphony guides them on a journey through America’s most breathtaking land- and cityscapes.

Ticket Requests for Discovery Concert 2024

The Discovery Concert is free to attend but tickets must be requested in advanced. Ticket requests will be accepted until December 22, 2023. Requests will be reviewed and the Augusta Symphony will send notifications in January 2024 as to whether requests can be fulfilled.

NOTE: Each individual homeschooling family must request their own tickets, rather than having a co-op or coordinator request tickets. One adult ticket is allowed per homeschooling family. 

The Augusta Symphony is dedicated to offering free and low-cost music enrichment experiences for students in the CSRA. We kindly request that educators commit to help us gather data on the impact of our programs by completing surveys and providing feedback both before and after the Discovery Concert.
