Musicians in the Schools
The QCSO maintains a deep connection with local school districts through school presentations and performances featuring QCSO musicians and guests soloist. For more than 50 years, professional musicians have been inspiring thousands through instrument demonstrations, ensemble sectionals, masterclasses, and solo and chamber ensemble performances.
In-School Activities Include:
• Individual Musician Presentations – intended for single classrooms, these presentations are designed to demonstrate the musician’s instrument and share insights on what it’s like to be a professional musician.
• Chamber Ensemble Performances – intended for full school assemblies, QCSO Chamber Ensemble performances are designed to highlight a diverse set of composers and compositions. QCSO Chamber Ensemble Performances also illustrate the power of collaboration and teamwork. QCSO Chamber ensembles include String Quartet/Quintet, Woodwind Quintet, Brass Quintet, and Percussion Ensemble.
• Ensemble Sectionals – these presentations are designed to help individual instrument sections or instrument families improve their skills on repertoire that is currently being studied in school music ensembles.
