Education Outreach Program


Elementary School Concert Series' objectives

The objective of our education outreach program is to perform at elementary schools located in the City of Richmond with the following three main goals:

- Introduce students to classical music with an "up close and personal" experience
- Encourage students to learn how to play an instrument
- Integrate music into the general curriculum

Our education outreach program is fully funded by our donors and sponsors, which allows us to provide the presentation free to the schools.  If you would like to request a performance of Carnival of the Animals, please call us at 604-276-2747 or email us at
