Education & Community

Lifelong Learning For Every Age

Music has the power to elevate much more than emotions. Our educational programs use that passion as the spark that inspires a continuing quest for knowledge. It’s a path that’s open to everyone, with a curriculum geared to foster deeper connections between youth, adult, and families—and the art at the center of symphonic life. Discover the full range of ways that the PSO bridges home, classroom, concert hall, and other community venues to inspire musical learning everywhere.
