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
Honk, Squeak, Scratch Boom is an instrument trial event for 4th-6th graders hosted by our professional musicians. This past program was a huge success for everyone involved.


Playing with the Pros
Playing with the Pros is a unique program for advanced music students to solo with the orchestra. An amazing opportunity for those budding musicians and a fun experience for our orchestra members.


Concerts for 4th Grade Students
This past program was presented to all 4th graders in Rochester and the surrounding area. A private concert was performed by the full orchestra—a great way to spread the interest in music.


FREE Family Previews
These are mini versions of two concerts each season performed just for families.

Free Family Previews are taking place on October 14, 2022 and February 24, 2023.
