Educational Outreach Programs
Every season, we engage our stellar guest artists to provide educational outreach programs at College Station and Bryan schools, Blinn College, and Texas A&M University. Students of all ages, from kindergarten through undergraduate college courses, have the opportunity to experience informal music presentations, workshops, and Q&A sessions with the world-renowned musicians.
Our enthusiastic guest musicians use creative and fun ways to engage the youngest audiences with live chamber music.

Educational outreach is a core component of the Friends of Chamber Music’s mission, and we believe in creating inspiring connections between our amazing guest musicians and students in Bryan-College Station. We partner with the music instructors across the CSISD, BISD, Blinn College, and Texas A&M University educational community to ensure the effectiveness of our outreach programs.
We offer these programs free of charge, thanks to the generous support by the Friends of Chamber Music’s patrons.
