Master Classes

Each season, the Education and Community Engagement Department holds Master Classes that feature VSO guest artists and VSO musicians. Participating students have the opportunity to experience the hands-on nature of these unique classes where private music lessons go public. Selected students will play for and be critiqued by the Featured artist. The perspectives offered by these world-class artists inspire participants and audience members alike.

FREE admission, open to the public, no reservation required.

Master Classes are generously supported by the Mayer I., Oscar Brandeis and Frances Levy Birshtein Fund.
