Our all-volunteer Outreach Choir has presented a total of seventeen wonderful interactive educational performances in Hillsborough and Pinellas County Elementary schools and three (free) age-appropriate professional concerts (titled "Going to the Show"), led by Deah McReynolds with special guest conductor Doreen Rao, for over 4,000 2nd-5th graders since the program launched in 2016 (with 3,000 reached during our 2017-2018 season!). We're excited about the popularity of our program and it's potential for significant growth!

"...there was a perfect balance of performance, entertainment, engagement, and education – a difficult balance to pull off!"

"Having five young kids of my own, I know the importance of musical interaction in a child's life. Music brightens their eyes and sparks an inner excitement in their minds. It's magical. I see the value in this program and I am honored to help make it a reality for our community's youth."
