Clear Lake Symphony


 

In-School Music Education Program

The In-School Music Program was begun by long time Clear Lake Symphony supporter Blanche Stastny in 1995.  The Clear Lake Symphony has a wonderful relationship with surrounding communities and presents an American History in Cultural Music in the public schools as part of their In-School Music Education Program.  In 2015 - 2016 Teams of 3 players each (3 winds, 3 strings, 3 brass) arrange to visit local elementary schools where they give demonstrations of their instruments followed by a mini concert.  CLS Liaison, Sherrie Matula, and  CCISD Director of Visual and Performing Arts, Dean Muths, coordinated the schools.  In 2015 - 2016, the Clear Lake Symphony Dixieland Combo presented concerts and discussions of music history in America in CCISD elementary schools.  Schools visited in the 2015 - 2016 Season included: Ferguson Elementary, Hyde Elementary and Mossman Elementary.  Over 300 students from the 3rd, 4th and 5th grades at each of these schools were in attendance.  Each student was given an Student & Adult Voucher to attend a concert of their choice.

The symphony is dedicated to the musical education of our children and brings classical music to the public schools, at no cost to the students or taxpayers, through classroom demonstrations and discussions. The Symphony annually donates numerous tickets to students to provide them with the opportunity to enjoy a free symphony concert. For additional information, call Sherrie Matula, (281) 486-0224.
