Education has been an integral part of the mission of the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra. Every year the orchestra has introduced over 3000 southern Wisconsin schoolchildren to classical music through our Youth Concerts. To enhance the school music curriculum we partner with school teachers and provide educational school visits to all schools attending our Youth Concerts. The visits support what the school music teachers teach and along with Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra musicians, we educate students on what they will experience at the Youth Concerts. 

The Young Artist Concerto Competition provides Wisconsin high school music students the opportunity to perform with the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra at our Youth Concerts and also at one of our summer Concerts on the Square®. Throughout the season we partner with local southern Wisconsin high schools and have world-class artists performing with the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra meet and work with high school age students. At our Concerts on the Square®, we feature local Dane County arts groups and artists to provide wonderful arts activities for children in the summer months.

The vision of the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra is to enable people of all ages in Southern Wisconsin to learn, create and become inspired through orchestral music. We look forward to serving as your partner in music education in the 2014-15 school year.
