Orchestras are Instrumental!

Early exposure to music and the arts is crucial to developing the creative spark in youth. To this end the Garland Symphony Orchestra’s Orchestras are Instrumental program offers a one hour hands-on interactive presentation to young children giving them the opportunity to hear, see, touch, and explore different aspects of classical music and the orchestra.

Orchestras are Instrumental is offered at area schools, libraries, and bookstores throughout the year, and is geared towards pre-school and kindergarten aged children.
