Symphony Kids and Class Act are two programs I initiated upon becoming the 17th Music Director of the Amarillo Symphony. It is my great joy and life’s purpose to give back musical inspiration to the young people of our beautiful community.
Symphony Kids focuses on the age group of third graders through fifth graders, and in collaboration with Carnegie Hall, provides engaging, interactive, and enriching programs designed to speak to young people who most likely have not heard an orchestra perform live. For me, it’s all about access and touch points. We are the connectors of the community-at-large to inspiration and hope through musical performance. It is my goal to have these kids love the performances, remember them for the rest of their lives, and always know that the orchestra can be a special place to dream, wonder, and imagine a beautiful life for themselves.
