Summermuik believes in taking a lead role in teaching children about the art of music.

Whether it is through attendance at open rehearsals, participation in question and answer sessions with our performers and music director, private one-on-one music instruction, complimentary performance tickets for children under 13, or side-by-side musical performance, we believe it is increasingly important for performing arts organizations to step forward and mold the next generation of musicians and music lovers.


We believe music education is important for the musically curious of all ages.

That is why we include fun and interesting facts in our concerts through pre-concert lectures and program notes delivered from the stage, and offer audience members the chance to meet our musicians following each performance. We also offer the annual adult education course “Orchestra Up-Close” in partnership with CHPL.
