CLASSICAL MUSIC CLASSROOMS

The Symphony's in-class Music Listening Program makes it possible for elementary school teachers to introduce classical music to their students on a daily basis. The program targets second through fifth graders and was piloted in 2012 with 10 teachers in four schools. The Santa Cruz County Office of Education is working with the Symphony to maximize the number of Classical Music Classrooms throughout the county. Currently, nearly 2000 students experience classical music daily in 16 of the County’s 31 elementary schools. Interested teachers and principals are invited to contact the Symphony office at (831) 462-0553 x10 to learn how they may participate.
