2016-17 Education Programs

Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra and Chorale invites you to participate in our full suite of extremely popular, FREE education programs!

During the 2016-17 season, PBO will present two Student Concerts showcasing the full Orchestra, four weeks of In-School Programs offering up-close presentations by our traveling vocal or instrumental ensembles, and a host of Mobile Mentors coaches from the Orchestra and Chorale who are eager to work with orchestras and choruses. In fact, PBO will double our efforts to reach out to youth choruses through a new partnership with the Junior Bach Festival. Our Adult Lecture Demonstration Series will reach out to adult living facilities and community organizations. In the hope that all of our partnering schools, community music centers, and charitable organizations will have an opportunity to hear Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale live, in concert, we will offer our partnering schools, community music centers, and charitable organizations a fixed number of complimentary tickets to each of our subscription concerts. Fascinating pre-concert lectures will also be offered free of charge at each performance venue.

Don’t miss out on these incredible musical opportunities! Please read the program descriptions below, and take a moment to apply to the appropriate programs by using the embedded links on this page before our seats are completely filled. It is a privilege for the Orchestra to share music with students of all ages, and we hope you will join us this season!

Time Travel Through Music

What if you could travel back in time to see and discover what life was like 300 years ago? Philharmonia’s new 35-minute video, Time Travel Through Music, shows how historically-informed performance can do just that. Join Nicholas McGegan and his musicians as they take you on a lively exploration of Early Music in a way that only Philharmonia can.

We started this project as part of Philharmonia’s education program in schools around the Bay Area. We are now making it available educators, students, and the general public free of charge. Click on the following link to download Supporting Materials for Time Travel Through Music
