Education Concerts Available All Spring
The digital education concert is live online! Since the beginning of 2021, students across the Valley have enjoyed this 35-minute program of chamber performances featuring every section of the orchestra. 


 “Our teachers absolutely love the Virtual Education Concert! They love how they can see and show the students the instruments, the music and edits are amazing!”
–McAllen ISD educator

“I’ve had students asking questions on Google Chat while watching the performances. Students would comment, ‘oh that is beautiful!’ and ‘Whoa!’. Some of them were surprised by the sound of the instruments. They had seen pictures but to hear it was new for some of them.” –Donna ISD educator
