The Venice Symphony’s, Symphony in the Schools, offers Sarasota County third-grade students the opportunity to see and hear all of the symphonic instruments.  Demonstration teams bring musical sights and sounds to life during visits to your school, using imagination and participation. Students can also attend an exciting performance of the entire Venice Symphony at the Venice Performing Arts Center, providing children with an authentic concert experience.

The Venice Symphony is one of only 3 orchestras in the State of Florida to partner with Carnegie Hall through their “Link Up” program. This year’s feature is “The Orchestra Rocks” focusing on rhythm in classical music. Seating for these exclusive performances is limited.

*Transportation funding is available for Sarasota Public Schools in Osprey and southward. Private schools and Sarasota County schools north of Osprey may participate, but are responsible for their own transportation.

**In class and hands-on instrument and music demonstrations are available year round. For more information about arranging a chamber concert, or “instrument petting zoo” at your school, please explore our Music Alive! program.
