Interactive Performances

Request an in-school field trip for your students with a CSO musician ensemble. These 45 to 60 minute performances (or two back-to-back 45 minute performances) are designed to expose students to a variety of music, familiarize them with orchestral instruments and give them the opportunity to get the know the musicians who make up the orchestra. To learn more or register, select our Musicians In Schools request form below.

With any of these ensembles, your students will explore how vibration and sound is created when musicians play beautiful music. Students will learn about the unique qualities of each ensemble instrument, hear a range of music, and ask questions to the musicians!



A chamber performance in the classroom brings an up close experience for band or orchestra students to see professionals play their instruments and work together as an ensemble. Pair this performance with a discussion or Q&A with the musicians for aspiring students or sectionals.

Ensembles Available:

  • Solo musician
  • String Duo
  • Brass Trio
  • String Quartet
  • Woodwind Quintet
