Musicians In Schools


Interaction with live music and musicians has the power to transform lives. Last season, CSO and Pops musicians, conductors and guest artists completed over 45 school visits, impacting more than 4,000 students across the Greater Cincinnati region. Request a visit from our artists to have your students experience live music performance or instrumental coaching in an up close and personal environment!

School Interactive Performances

Request an in-school field trip for your students with a CSO musician ensemble. These 45 to 60 minute performances (or two back-to-back 45 minute performances) are designed to expose students to a variety of music, familiarize them with orchestral instruments and give them the opportunity to get the know the musicians who make up the orchestra. To learn more or register, select our Musicians In Schools request form below.

Available ensembles: Solo musician, String Duo, String Quartet, Brass Trio, Woodwind Quintet

With any of these ensembles, your students will explore how vibration and sound is created when musicians play beautiful music. Students will learn about the unique qualities of each ensemble instrument, hear a range of music, and ask questions to the musicians!


Instrumental Coaching

Schedule a CSO musician to come lead a sectional practice with your middle or high school music students. Musicians can help your students prepare for their upcoming performances through sectional or small ensemble coaching. To request in-school coaching, complete the Musicians In Schools request form below.
