Throughout the year, the Philharmonic features acclaimed soloists at selected concerts. As part of their appearance the Philharmonic asks the soloist to prepare and present master classes for local public school music students to assist in improving their skills. Using the services of the Philharmonic’s guest artists, master classes will be presented for aspiring pianists, vocalists, and exceptional band students.
Classes will be presented based on the types of guest artists that the Philharmonic programs for the year. Guest artists assist the student with their repertoire and prepare them for a solo performance in their school. The opportunity for these students to work with a professional is awe-inspiring and a thrilling and beneficial experience that would not occur without the service of the Philharmonic’s outreach programming.
