CSO in Our Schools

The Charlotte Symphony believes that music plays a vital role in lifelong learning. Our mission is to nurture a passion for orchestral music in our community through diverse educational programming and robust instruction.


Over the course of the school year, CSO musicians visit high school band, orchestra, and piano classes to work directly with students and help them increase their overall musicianship through professional instruction.
