Youth and Education

To educate, inspire and engage members of the community of all ages through active and enriching musical experiences is an essential mission of the Winston-Salem Symphony.

From our triple-faceted Youth Orchestras Program to our in-school chamber ensembles, from our Discovery Concerts for Kids to our Music Lovers’ Luncheons (held Fridays before each Classics Series performance), the Symphony is committed to offering valuable educational experiences for children and adults alike.
