Discover Music

Discover Music Education Concert Series

The Discover Music Series has been an integral part of the Abilene Philharmonic’s season since 1955. Held annually at the Abilene Civic Center in October, the series reaches approximately 6,000 area students in grades three through five – including public, private and home-school.  Our Music Director designs student-friendly programs alongside a local elementary music specialist who creates the Teacher’s Guide curriculum book, integrating with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) guidelines.


This Year’s Program

2013 TG Cover pageThis year, we are proud to present “MELODY MADNESS!”, a program designed by Music Director David Itkin to introduce students to some of symphonic music’s most beloved composers and their music.  From sublime Beethoven to triumphant Tchaikovsky, he promises to create an overall experience that will both educate and inspire your students.

We are especially thrilled with this year’s curriculum guide, written by AISD Elementary Music Teacher Teresa Graham. She has created an exceptional teacher guide with grade-appropriate concepts and activities.
