Educational Outreach

Our experience with the KCCO was beyond amazing! Jennifer and Don did such a great job with our students. It was very enjoyable for all. – Lisa B., Shawnee Mission Instructional Support Center

 

The educational outreach programs of The Kansas City Civic Orchestra seek to cultivate an appreciation for the experience of live instrumental and orchestral music, and to provide support for music education to community members of all age levels throughout the Greater Kansas City area.

The orchestra’s educational outreach activities currently include:

  • Pre-concert instrument petting zoos, supervised opportunities for children to hold and experience playing real orchestral instruments.
  • In-school, interactive, participatory performances and demonstrations for elementary students, involving stringed and other instruments.IMG_4520
  • “Master classes” held for school-aged children studying particular classical instruments, provided by soloists using those instruments to perform during concerts with the Civic Orchestra.
  • Musical entertainment events for nursing homes and similar care centers in the area.
  • “Youth Concerts” included among the Civic’s regular season programming, featuring compositions familiar to children of school age, e.g., themes from popular adventure and science-fiction films.
  • Soloist competitions offering students in local elementary and secondary schools a chance to perform with the Civic Orchestra.
