Free Virtual Program for School Audiences

“Thank you so much for helping to amaze and enthrall our 4th graders! Your performance captivated them and kept them engaged from start to finish!” - 4th grade teacher, Foussat Elementary

San Diego Symphony offers a creative learning opportunity, in a concert format, especially for elementary and middle school students as a VIRTUAL field trip experience! (We are offering this format due to the pandemic.) Teachers and students are invited to integrate these 40-minute concerts into their learning day to introduce schoolchildren to the world of storytelling through classical music. THE PROGRAMS ARE FREE OF CHARGE (!) and most appropriate for students in grades 2-8.
