As part of our educational outreach program,
educational partnerships were developed with
school Music Specialists and Orchestra
Directors to support and enhance school
We focused on high-need, high-risk elementary schools which were developing a music program and had limited resources and whose studentbody represented the demographic diversity of our service population.
Arts Learning grants from the Nevada Arts
Council helped fund these activities.
The Maestro worked with the school Music
Specialist to prepare the student chorus to perform
with the orchestra as Guest Artists at our annual Holiday concerts in December.
He arranged music selected by the school's Music Specialist for chorus and orchestra and visited the students in school to teach them how to follow a conductor.
This program created a wonderfully exciting and rewarding interaction that brought our services into the community, supported the growth and
development of music and musicianship,
and brought a new and diverse audience into the concert hall.
