Junior Ensembles - No Fee

To extend our impact throughout Hampton Roads and to ensure the future excellence of Mosaic Steel Orchestra’s Stage Side ensemble we have formed community partnerships developing junior ensembles which engage elementary and middle school students residing in Low to Moderate income neighborhoods. The junior orchestra, in addition to artistic goals has specific behavioral outcomes designed to develop the ability to stay on task in various settings, the ability to work together in a positive peer group, and to develop leadership skills. For more information about one of our offerings call (757) 625-0545 or email us at info@MosaicSteelOrchestra.org.
