Education Program: Take a Seat…in the Orchestra
In connection with the July performances, CFO will inaugurate an exciting new mentoring program for area music students:

  • a 3-day program where student interns will
    • be assigned a mentor in the orchestra according to the instrument they play
    • help with orchestra setup for rehearsals & concerts
    • sit in the orchestra during rehearsals
    • play one selection with the CFO in concert (which they must learn in advance) that will be a world premiere (soon to be announced)
    • attend a CFO picnic
    • introduce their mentors to friends and family at concerts.
    • receive a special Take a Seat…in the Orchestra T-shirt
    • Students will be able to apply through their instrumental teachers in area schools or private teachers. To recommend a student, click HERE
