Schools & Teachers

A child’s first contact with live symphonic music can be transformative!

Symphony Nova Scotia’s school programs offer children the chance to engage with orchestra members in a low-barrier, hands-on way. Symphony Nova Scotia musicians truly enjoy the opportunity to meet and mentor Nova Scotian children. All of our programs are subsidized through the generosity of corporate sponsors and a few are even free to schools.

“Our audiences of the future are as critical as the musicians who will grow into the symphony players of tomorrow. Reaching out to these young people, showing them how uplifting good music is, is one of Symphony Nova Scotia’s most worthwhile tasks. It’s more than our responsibility – it’s our joy.”

– Maestro Bernhard Gueller
