Over the next few weeks, Eastman School of Music students will be reaching out into the community with classical music, presenting interactive concerts in schools, libraries, churches, and other locations. The events are part of the School’s “Music for All” initiative, a chamber music program designed to take classical music out of concert halls and bring it directly to the public.
The Eastman students developed two performance programs, one for a school-aged audience and one for a general audience, which they’ll present between March 16 and April 28.
“Music for All” is a curricular requirement for Eastman brass, harp, piano, string, and wind chamber music groups, designed to teach students the skills necessary to bring music to audiences in the community. In addition to several dozen private performances, several of the events are free and open to the public, who can see these concerts at the following venues and dates:
