Education

Tulsa Symphony’s Education Programs impact the lives of students of all ages in our community!

Carnegie Hall’s Link Up
In its third season of partnership with Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute, Tulsa Symphony will serve upwards of 17,000 third, fourth and fifth grade students and teachers in the 2017-2018 season through Link Up: “The Orchestra Sings.” Students learn about orchestra repertoire through a year-long, hands-on music curriculum. The culmination of the program is a live performance, in which students sing and play the recorder along with the TSO in the concert hall. This experience often serves as students’ first concert experience. This experience also serves as Tulsa 4th graders’ Any Given Child arts activity.

Symphony by the Sea
Symphony by the Sea for Students is a unique field trip opportunity combining arts and science education through a partnership of the Oklahoma Aquarium and the Tulsa Symphony Orchestra. Students travel to three stations in the Aquarium to learn about a particular animal or habitat and a selected musical ensemble.

Rosa Parks Music Exploration
TSO teams up with the Rosa Parks Early Childhood Education Center in the Union School District to provide musical exposure to three and four year olds. Our musicians provide Hallway Explorations, Naptime Serenades, Playground Concerts, Carpool Performances, and an annual Family Concert. Through this partnership, teachers are able to expand their conversations with children in the areas of music, instruments, movement and the creative arts.
