Providing music education to our community is the core of the RPO’s mission. Every year, over 17,000 students sing, clap, stomp, dance, and interact with the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra in specially designed concerts held in the Eastman Theatre and public venues throughout our community. Of these students, 7,500 are from the Rochester City School District; 100% of RCSD 3rd grade and 5th grade students attend RPO Education Concerts. Pre-concert classroom learning materials are provided to enhance and meet New York State curriculum guidelines.
In a culturally vibrant community, it is essential that all citizens, especially the youngest, have access to live arts experiences, regardless of their financial circumstances.
- 50 min concerts for students in grades 1-3.
- Held in the Eastman Theatre, these concerts teach students about the orchestra families of instruments and how the orchestra musicians use teamwork to play together.
- 2 concerts per year in February
- Admission is free for Rochester City School District students. For schools outside the RCSD, there is a $5 admission fee per student.
