From Tots to Teens

As one of the first organizations in the nation to introduce a program specifically for the youth, we continue to focus on how we can enrich and influence younger generations through music!


As we adjust to social distance guidelines, your RPO is proud to offer resources to inspire, educate, and engage children in the art of music.
You can also check our Activities page for some downtime projects!

Real World Experience

The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra always has a roster of internationally acclaimed artists in the events calendar. In addition to RPO’s own musical team, many of these musicians and artists are more than happy to include special appearances to local schools during their time with us. Students of all ages are presented with lectures, demonstrations, masterclasses and personal stories from these special guests and our resident musicians.

If you are interested in having an artist attend your school, contact us today!
