Musicians In Schools

Bring the CSO to your classroom (virtually!)

Make the music up close and personal for your students by enjoying a chamber ensemble performance, coaching, or presentation with CSO musicians! 

While we normally schedule these experiences in-person, for the safety of all students, teachers, and musicians, Musicians in Schools experiences will be virtual-only through May 2021. These experiences are offered at no cost, but registration is required. Musicians in Schools experiences will be available beginning in September.
