As part of our educational outreach program,
educational partnerships are developed with
school Music Specialists and Orchestra
Directors to support and enhance school
Most recently we have focused on high-need,
high-risk elementary schools which are developing
a music program and have limited resources.
Arts Learning grants from the Nevada Arts
Council help fund these activities.
The Maestro works with the school Music
Specialist to prepare the student chorus to perform
with the orchestra.
He arranges music selected by the school's Music Specialist for chorus and orchestra and visits the students in school to teach them how to follow a conductor. The chorus is then presented as Guest Artists at our annual Holiday
concert in December.
This is a wonderfully exciting and rewarding interaction that brings our services into the community, supports the growth and
development of music and musicianship,
and brings new audiences into the concert hall.
