Whenever possible, we offer music students an opportunity to work directly with Symphony musicians in a collaborative workshop. These events are tailored to the needs of the students.

Redge Craig Memorial Workshops

This free, interactive, instrumental workshop is held annually at a school in Nova Scotia in memory of Redge Craig, a social worker and mentor to many people. The workshop’s goal is to connect the Symphony’s orchestra members with aspiring young musicians, particularly those who may not otherwise have the opportunity to learn from a professional mentor.


We also partner with the Fountain School of Performing Arts to present Masterclasses by our visiting guest soloists and composers, where participants dig deep into the world of symphonic music.

*These masterclasses are presented in partnership with the Dalhousie Fountain School of Performing Arts. For more information, and for a complete schedule of their offerings, please visit their website here.
