Education & Outreach Concerts

Our Education & Outreach concerts are designed for students in kindergarten through Grade 6 in Victoria, Saanich, Sooke, Gulf Islands, and Cowichan school districts as well as in independent and home schools.
These concerts provide fun, accessible, and engaging experiences while exposing students to the wonders of live classical music. They are supported with lesson plans created by the award-winning Orff specialist Marcelline Moody, and a Pro-D Workshop for Teachers.

Over 5,000 Vancouver Island elementary school students attend these concerts!
