Youth Education Program
The San Juan Symphony's Youth Education program serves all communities in the Colorado and New Mexico Four Corners region.
The Meet-a-Musician program is the San Juan Symphony's primary outreach element. The musicians speak about and demonstrate their instruments, answer questions, coach music ensembles, or participate in rehearsals and concerts playing next to students in the full ensemble.
In addition, the education program also arranges an annual Side-By-Side concert where area school students are featured on stage with the symphony for a portion of the program. The Side-by-Side includes additional coachings and rehearsals with symphony musicians. This season's Side-By-Side will take place at the November 10-11, 2012 concerts.
The San Juan Symphony also maintains a cooperative relationship with Fort Lewis College where both faculty and students are members of the orchestra.
