Part of the Coastside Community Orchestra's mission is to foster a love of classical music in young people. The orchestra offers annual scholarships to graduating seniors as well as educational field trips to the SF Symphony for local elementary schools.
SCHOLARSHIPS AND OPPORTUNITIES
Each year, CCO awards scholarships to local students to further their musical education. We also encourage young musicians to join us, thus experiencing the joy of playing orchestral repertoire, and making music with other musicians.
FIELD TRIPS TO SAN FRANCISCO SYMPHONY
In an effort to foster a love of music among Coastside kids, each year CCO partners with local elementary schools to sponsor classroom field trips to the San Francisco Symphony's Concert for Kids
CLASSROOM INSTRUMENT DEMOS
CCO musicians attend local school assemblies to play and demonstrate their instruments, often in preparation for the SF Symphony field trips. We encourage students to be a good audience, ask questions and touch instruments, thus inspiring them to learn to play an instrument themselves.
CCO musicians eagerly support other musical endeavors and fellow musicians of the Coastside community and beyond. We often donate our time to play in high school musicals, local theater productions and other local and Bay Area music events.
