Music education programs
We are again pleased to offer seven music education programs to the greater Racine community. Combined, these programs offer interactive learning experiences to “students” of all ages.
Programs include the Artist-in-Residence, Young Artists’ Competition, PreConcert Conversations, High School Choral Invitational, Concerts for Fifth Grade Students, Middle School Mentorship Program and Side-by-Side Youth Invitational. Aside from a small entry fee associated with the Young Artists’ Competition, all of these programs are offered free of charge.
Thank you to every person, company and organization whose support makes our concerts and education programs possible. We look forward to seeing you.
