Symphony in the Schools

Community Partnerships Artists-in Residency

These partnerships, created especially for schools looking to build or augment their music programs, offer students an opportunity to experience workshops, interactive music-making, master classes and performances with South Shore Conservatory faculty members. Residencies are adapted to suit the unique needs of each school system. An important facet of each Residency is a community concert featuring the faculty musicians and selected students. These concerts give students a chance to share the experience of the residency with their families and engage residents of the community in the experience of live performance.

"One of the main goals of the 'Symphony in the Schools' program is to build a culture of high level music making in the town of Randolph. If we expect our children to make music at a high level, then we have a responsibility to expose them to musical experiences of the highest quality. Community and family investment in the arts is crucial to seeing our students succeed and flourish. The community concert that concludes each residency is a way for students, families, faculty, and community members to experience the joy that arises out of music making."
-Eric Laprade Director of Music, Randolph Public Schools
