Ensembles in Schools
October through May
For Middle and High School students, CSO String Quintet and Wind Quintet visits serve to further engage students in their musical study. Whether it’s a performance which covers the instruments and well-known composers for a general music class or a visit to a band or orchestra ensemble to cover rehearsal techniques, practice habits, and working as an ensemble, the quintets enhance student learning and musicianship.
By reservation only. We’ll begin taking reservations for the 2017/18 season in August.
