Every year all second and fifth graders visit The Music Center at Strathmore.
In April 2010, all 10,000 fifth grade students in Montgomery County Public Schools filled the seats at the Music Center at Strathmore Concert Hall to enjoy a performance by the National Philharmonic. Six daytime performances of music by Tchaikovsky and Mussorgsky were held April 7, 8, and 9. The fifth grade concerts, in their second year, are sponsored by GEICO and Bank of America.
Since opening the Music Center in February 2005, Strathmore also has welcomed all MCPS second grade students each fall.
