Adopt-a-Musician

Adopt a Musician and have your class join with a Symphony Nova Scotia musician in a multi-session creative project.

A final performance of their work together will be offered for all participating class-groups and their families!

You can choose to have your students develop their project in an organic way with their adopted musician, or collaborate on one of the Symphony’s tried and true projects, developed with cross-curricular learning goals in mind.

"Symphony Nova Scotia's Adopt-a-Musician program exposed my students to diverse musical experiences, allowed them to create, and had a direct impact on their self-esteem and identity shaping. I can't tell you how much gratitude I have for the availability of programs like this."
