Collaborating with Play on Philly!

By Erik Petersons on March 23, 2012

Our Julian and Lois Brodsky Education Program is a robust collection of events that serve all ages, and we are always looking for new ways to expand our outreach in the Philadelphia community. This year, through the generous support of the Brodskys and a recommendation from another of our board members, Carole Haas Gravagno, PCMS collaborated with Play on Philly! to bring the Borromeo Quartet and the Chestnut Brass Company to St. Francis de Sales School in West Philadelphia. Students involved in the budding music program had the opportunity to hear these master artists perform during their school day, ask questions and receive feedback for their own chamber groups. We hope to continue the success of this partnership next year and are excited to share with you some video footage from each event.

If you would like to support our efforts as we connect world-class artists with students to encourage the next generation of musicians and audience members, please consider a contribution to our Education Fund.
