The Exploration of Music through Orchestra history
The Exploration of Music through orchestra is an annual performing arts event like none other held in Fort Wayne, IN. combining area school string programs to play together. The event began as a platform to gain awareness to two of the only full orchestra programs left in Fort Wayne community schools system, Northrop and Snider High Schools. Since then, the program has expanded to include area middle and elementary schools which gives those students a learning and educational experience.
The 2014 Exploration of Music through Orchestra program
The 2014 event will impact over 300 students from Northrop High School, Snider High School, South Side High School, North Side High School, Wayne High School, Lane Middle School, Memorial Park Middle School, Portage Middle School, Jefferson Middle School, Blackhawk Middle School, Shawnee Middle School, Northwood Middle School and Weiser Park Elementary School. This is the first time in program and school history a collaborative concert of this magnitude has been assembled.
The Exploration of Music through Orchestra has given over 600 students the opportunity and experience to play together which would have never happened. This is not only a learning lesson and enjoyable experience for the students but also the growing audience of over 500 attendees. The talent of the students within the schools that have participated has impacted all involved. We understand the culture of the performing arts in the greater Fort Wayne area is extremely important and that is why we are determined to continue to support, promote and encourage the students in the community through The Exploration of Music through Orchestra.
