  CSO Backstage Workshops  

CSO Backstage Workshops are designed to introduce students in grades 7-12 to a variety of career opportunities in classical music. Many times, the onstage career opportunities in classical music are obvious, yet there are many exciting behind-the-scenes careers that may not be so obvious, such as composing, concert production, marketing, finance, and public relations. Presenters include CSO staff, musicians and other professionals. Workshops begin at 5:30p at Music Hall and include the workshop followed by a light dinner and 2 complimentary tickets to the evenings CSO concert.  Additional tickets are available at a reduced rate.
