Third Grade Classroom Ensemble Visits and Concerts
Once every school year, with support from the Yanoff Music Initiative Grant from the Cumberland Community Foundation (CCF), and Communities in Schools, master FSO musicians visit select elementary schools in the Cumberland County Schools (CCS) to give third grade students engaging presentations and informative Q&A sessions supplementing the music teachers’ own work with the FSO/CCS pre-approved curriculum guide. All of this is to prepare the students for their upcoming trip to the Symphony. In November of this year, the FSO will perform a pair of youth concerts for all 4,000+ third grade students in the Cumberland County Schools. This concert is often the first introduction for these students to a live symphonic concert experience.
High School Musician Mentoring
As of our 2014-2015 season, our professional musicians will be visiting select high schools to help mentor music students of Cumberland County. This program will offer the students the opportunity to learn more detailed performance techniques of their instrument and the chance to learn from some of the top performing musicians of North Carolina.
If you are interested in scheduling a school visit by our professional musicians, contact us at our Symphony Office at (910)433-4690 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
