The LSO brings music to the schools through the Chamber Ensemble Outreach Program. The educational brass and woodwind quintets and string quartet are comprised of LSO musicians and Texas Tech University graduate students. They perform for local third and fourth graders and provide an informative and interactive musical experience. Students are introduced to each instrument and experience a live performance in an up-close and personal setting. These small ensembles also perform in other settings throughout the community including assisted living facilities, after-school programs, and the Lubbock County Juvenile Justice Center.
This program, made possible by funding from The CH and Helen Jones Foundations, resulted in more than 50 performances in schools in the community during the 2014-2015 academic year.
