WHAT IS CLASS ACT?
Class Act is an Education program that brings the artistic leadership of the Amarillo Symphony to classrooms across the community. Taking the form of ensemble performances in informal settings for small groups, the Class Act program creates meaningful interactive experiences for students and musicians that will cultivate students’ knowledge and relationships with orchestral music and Amarillo Symphony musicians. These in-school presentations include musical performances, instrument demonstrations, student participation, and question & answer sessions. Class Act is eager to partner with area teachers to offer an experience that meets the unique needs of their students. In addition, this program makes our musicians available to clinic area ensembles.
Our goals with this program are:
- To connect students with musicians of the Amarillo Symphony.
- To create interest in performing an instrument.
- To draw connections between great orchestral music and the music that children experience in their everyday lives.
- To provide an educational experience.
- To have fun!
