SSO Outreach & Education ProgramsIn its publication, Making the Case for Arts Education, the Ontario Arts Council found that young people exposed to music demonstrated improved reading, writing and mathematical skills. Additionally, their ability to think creatively, work in teams, communicate, solve problems and exercise self-discipline is greatly enhanced. Students involved in music find that their commitment to the art helps keep them focused and motivated in everything they pursue, helping them attain a higher level of achievement in all areas of their life, as well as a sense of personal accomplishment.

We’re very proud to be able to offer a number of free programs that allow Sudburians of all ages to experience the dramatic power of music. Every year our Outreach and Education programs inspire thousands of people in our community.

Musical Encounters

Small ensembles and individual musicians of the SSO present an educational and interactive introduction to classical music. These short presentations take place in classrooms, libraries or gyms for small groups and provide an up-close and personal look at specific instruments of the orchestra, life as a musician, or certain time periods of music.

Concerts In Care

Produced by the Health Arts Society of Ontario, Concerts in Care is a program that provides concerts to seniors’ facilities, hospices and hospitals. The Sudbury Symphony Orchestra has partnered with Concerts in Care this season to deliver a variety of Outreach/Community Engagement concerts to seniors’ facilities throughout the Greater Sudbury area.

Community Connections

Join us at 12 noon for an hour lunchtime chat on the Wednesday of each concert week to gain new insights into the music you will hear and further enhance your concert experience.
