Bring a small ensemble of the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra to perform for the students at your school.
Small ensembles of the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra musicians bring the orchestra off the stage and into your school for a close-up musical experience where children are active listeners. These 30-minute performances are designed to introduce classical music and the instruments of the orchestra to students in grades K to 5.
$150/visit (includes two back-to-back 30-minute performances)
Financial assistance is available for Title I schools.
“This was a great opportunity for the students to see and hear live music up close, which is not something they experience often if ever. Thank you for coming and being so positive in your interactions with the students. It was perfect for their level of understanding and experience."
