EducationChildren's Music Discovery Series
One of the core missions of The Desert Symphony is to introduce young listeners to live music.
Through the Children’s Music Discovery Series, concerts are presented to the children of the Coachella Valley at no cost to the students. These concerts have ranged in size from a string quartet to a wind octet to full symphony orchestra, each under the supervision and presentation of the symphony’s Music Director.
In the past several years, The Desert Symphony has partnered with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Coachella Valley, the Rancho Mirage Public Library, the City of La Quinta, and the McCallum Theatre. Future performances are scheduled at the La Quinta Public Library and the Palm Desert Public Library.
In addition, The Desert Symphony has been proud to encourage young musicians to further their path toward a career in music through scholarships. Many of these young artists have achieved their goal, including Lindsay Deutsch (international violin soloist), Jennifer Frautschi (two-time Grammy Award nominated violinist), Hahn-Bin aka Amadeus Leopold (international violin soloist), and Elizabeth Pitcairn (international violin soloist and owner of the famous Stradivarius “Red Violin”).
