School/Orchestra Artistic Residencies

At the core of our outreach program are our residencies in local schools.  Throughout the year, participating schools enjoy regular visits from symphony musicians, master classes, and private concerts. With the input of district administrators, schools are chosen based on a need, such as the assignment of a new teacher, a struggling music program, a schoolwide achievement gap, or a community socioeconomic gap. Our goals at these schools are to build relationships, confidence, and capacity.
