STARS IN THE CLASSROOM    

Sharing music with young people

We cordially invite your class to attend concerts in the Festival Tent with international orchestras and world-famous musicians.

We are happy to provide documentation to prepare for the concert in class. Alternatively, we would gladly come for a visit and introduce the program in person. We suggest upper classes attend concerts, while elementary levels come to rehearsals or academies.

Please contact us and we will gladly make suggestions for your school or class.
