PBI Awards 2018: Best Musical Outreach
From innovative arts organizations to hardworking local grocers, there are countless reasons to love our community.
All season, members of the Palm Beach Symphony share their gift with audiences through masterworks and chamber music concerts. But what happens off-stage can be even more inspiring. Through the symphony’s education programs, pro musicians offer hands-on demos, master classes, and coaching for budding virtuosos communitywide. They’ve taught students at music-magnet schools like Palm Beach Public, have sponsored STEAM nights at the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium, and have performed side-by-side with advanced learners. And that’s in addition to instrument donations and interactive performances designed to engage children, such as a collaborative symphony-ballet production of Peter and the Wolf. Adults can also benefit from this educational component through narrated concerts and multimedia musical experiences that are as informative as they are entertaining.
