The Link Up program doesn't work without recorders! The Link Up concerts for all 4th graders in Stamford Public Schools, culminate in a performance with the Orchestra in West Hill High School. For most students it is the very first time they have heard a symphony orchestra live. Help us to provide a brand new recorder to every 4th grader in Stamford Public Schools.
Part of Michael Stern's Five Year Vision is an explosion of musical offerings throughout Fairfield County. To help deliver this, Michael has appointed Nicolas Gonzalez as our first-ever full time Community Engagement and Education Manager. From shopping malls to libraries, and from town squares to retirement communities, Nic's mission is to bring our extraordinary musicians to a venue near you. Please help us to truly deliver our community engagement dream.
During 2021 we plan to be back in the classrooms of our schools, side-by-side with our incredible music teachers. As part of our partnership with Carnegie Hall's Link Up program we want to support a sustainable series of visits to ensure students get the most out of the Orchestra's visit and that they receive professional musical experiences in the classroom and school hall. Help us maximize the number of visits we can make to your local school!
Support our new partnership with Stamford Health.
Help us bring the healing power of music to those who are sick and to their extraordinary care givers. Stamford Health medical professionals know the power of live music and we are seeking to build a program that will take our extraordinary musicians into Stamford Hospital and provide transformative experiences that support the healing process by improving mood, pain tolerance and mental outlook, and providing a personal human connection.
Local school districts get to take advantage of a series of "master class" bootcamps for a specific instrument. In this two hour program, led by a Stamford Symphony musician, kids will get guidance and feedback from a professional musician. What an invaluable opportunity!
We want to work with our partners at Project Music, In Tempo and the Young Artists Philharmonic, plus our public schools in the county, all represented here tonight, to do as many of these as possible!
Historically, there have been some great works of music that the Stamford Symphony has not been able to perform due to the fact that they required so many musicians on the stage. When we return to the Palace Theatre, we want to give our newly-appointed Music Director Michael Stern opportunities to program some of these fantastic pieces. Your contribution to the "Major Works Fund" will be rewarded with the sounds of some wonderful music we have never performed!
MusiKids is the Orchestra's FREE interactive presentation for kids ages between 5-12 that takes place before all Sunday orchestral concerts at 2pm, one hour before the main concert. Taught by our music educator, this program offers kids a chance to preview the music repertoire and meet the guest soloist. They are introduced to the basic musical principles and get to ask questions of the extraordinary musicians.
Take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn from one of Stamford Symphony's professional roster of musicians. A package of 4 music lessons will be conducted virtually.
