EDUCATION Series

SFCMP’s Education Series includes a number of educational programs to support and help shape the cutting edge of contemporary music.

Our How Music is Made program provides composers an opportunity to reveal their motivation behind the notes. Through an open-to-the-public dress rehearsal followed by a composer talk, we aim to help our audiences emotionally connect with the composers’ experiences and thereby better prepare them to appreciate the depth of the work that will be heard at the concert.

Master Classes provide opportunities for talented students to perform contemporary classical music through professional guidance and critiquing in front of a live audience.

Our Side-by-Side program fosters the development of pre-professional musicians by providing an opportunity to rehearse with our ensemble and perform in a subscription-series concert.
