Educational Concerts

One of our biggest embodiments of Arts Without Borders, our educational concerts open minds in the moment, and more importantly, long after they’ve left the building. The Sheldon introduces young people to jazz, folk, classical, world music, dance and more through engaging, one-of-a kind performances.

These one-hour performances feature some of St. Louis’ top musicians and educators as well as several nationally acclaimed artists. Students are given the opportunity for a Q&A session with artists at the end of each performance. Teacher handbooks, which include additional educational material and follow-up activities, will be provided to guide teachers for each concert.

Registration for shows in the 24-25 season will open in the fall.
