IN-SCHOOL PROGRAMS

Wolfie Goes to School

Using the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, musicians from the Sudbury Symphony Orchestra work with grades 4-6 classes over several weeks to explore the elements of music. During multiple classroom visits, students learn about the life of Mozart, as well as time period he lived in. This program assists in addressing the Ontario Arts Curriculum strands for “Reflecting, Responding and Analyzing,” and “Exploring Forms and Cultural Contexts.”

Suitable for Grades 4 to 6

Musical Encounters

Small ensembles and individual musicians of the Sudbury Symphony Orchestra are available to present an educational and interactive introduction to classical music. These short presentations take place in school classrooms, libraries or gyms for small groups and provide an up-close and personal look at specific instruments of the orchestra, or certain time periods of music.

Suitable for Kindergarten to Grade 8

Join the Band

Members of the Sudbury Symphony Orchestra can be made available to provide leadership to high school bands. These one-time sessions are designed to supplement existing school music programs and can be customized to suit the needs and interests of the teacher and students. Topics of interest have included work on specific repertoire, instrument care, group performance, and instrument technique.

Suitable for Grades 9+
