Music in the Schools

While in the Bay Area for their performances on Four Seasons’ concert series, Artists look forward to spending time with local school children as Four Seasons presents programs for public school students in Oakland and Berkeley.

The excitement in the faces of the children as they gather around these musicians confirms the importance of these programs for our children. These lecture/demonstrations are often the childrens’ sole contact with professional artists and with the music performance world. This program enlarges students’ world view and fosters their appreciation and ownership of the Arts.  We are thrilled to be able to offer this enhancement to our community.
