Exposure to classical music at an early age is a gift that offers a lifetime of rewards. At the Stamford Symphony, we believe that all of the children in our community should have access to this gift. That’s why the Stamford Symphony has built a partnership with local schools to provide quality music education programs to all students. Through our nationally acclaimed music education program, we bring professional musician-educators from the Orchestra into schools, we give students special opportunities to see the Orchestra at work, and we offer awards and scholarships to promising young musicians.
The Stamford Symphony also partners with an extensive network of community service organizations to provide free and low-cost tickets to audiences who otherwise lack the means to attend classical concerts. Participants include programs helping local young people build self-esteem, ethnic organizations, churches, and seniors living in public housing. If you know of or belong to an organization that could benefit from these programs, contact our Education Department.
