Bringing great music to life for people of all ages...

In addition to performances of great music, Rochester Symphony values music education to carry appreciation, education and enjoyment of classical music into future generations.  With a range of programs available—from Honk, Squeak, Scratch, Boom to participation in Rochester Music Guild’s Lunch and Learn series—we bring great music to life for people of all ages.


Our education programs have been impacted by COVID-19 restrictions and are in planning stages for future dates.

Educational Programs:

Honk, Squeak, Scratch Boom: an instrument trial event for 4th-6th hosted by our professional musicians.

Concerts for 4th Grade Students: all 4th graders in Rochester and the surrounding area get a private concert performed by the full orchestra.

Playing with the Pros: a program for advanced music students to solo with the orchestra.

Free Family Previews: mini versions of two concerts each season performed just for families. (Free Family Previews are planned for 2021/22.)
