Chicago Sinfonietta: From the Classroom to the Concert Hall

Classical Education For The Next Generation

"After the Sinfonietta performance we attended, one of my students whom I am so proud of was particularly inspired. His first comment to me was, 'Mei-Ann Chen was AWESOME!' as he leapt off the ground imitating her on the podium! I have never seen him so excited. He then announced he's already decided to get his Masters in music as well because he wants to be just like her. This experience has been so amazing and awe-inspiring!"
—Theresa W., Chicago Public Schools Educator

"Nearly 12 years ago, Maestro Paul Freeman formalized his causal mentoring outreach with a few students into Audience Matters and Student Ensembles with Excellence and Diversity (SEED), Chicago Sinfonietta’s impactful music education programs. These programs now reach more than 2,000 students throughout Chicagoland.

We aim to provide children and young adults with an immersive, inclusive opportunity to experience classical music in the concert hall and the classroom. Maestro Freeman believed that young people can’t be what they can’t see. We want students to see themselves as an active part of the classical community regardless of race, ethnicity, or socioeconomic status.

Give the gift of music and education with a donation to Chicago Sinfonietta’s outreach programs. Your contribution will directly support our mission of diversity and inclusion in classical music into 2019, and for generations to come.

Thank you for your generosity!"
