Music In The Schools

The Monterey Symphony engages fourth and fifth grade Monterey County students in our renowned Music in the Schools program by providing musicians from the symphony to conduct in-school demonstrations of the instrument families and host school youth concerts, presented to nearly 6,000 students last year alone. For many children who participate in our programs, this is their first experience learning about and hearing symphonic music LIVE!

Musician Sponsorship

Each year, musicians touch the lives of many by sharing their artistic ability and passion for music with us all. The musicians of the Monterey Symphony are no exception. They are the very core and essence of presenting Great Music, LIVE! and play an integral part in the cultural vibrancy of our region.

Do you already know a Monterey Symphony musician or perhaps have a favorite instrument? A sponsorship is a fantastic way to show your support. To participate, you may designate your preferred musician in the attachment or specify a section and have us assist you in selecting a musician.
