Building Blocks of the Orchestra

Through our innovative Building Blocks program, ASO musicians interact with over 15,000 students (grades Pre-K–3) annually in a school setting and introduce them to the instruments of the orchestra, laying a firm foundation for music appreciation. Presentations feature rotating chamber ensembles of ASO musicians, including a string quartet, woodwind quintet, and brass quintet, as well as individual percussion and harp demonstrations. Between Dec. 2023 and May 2024, 40 inner city elementary schools will receive a Building Blocks presentation!

The Building Blocks program is designed especially for younger listeners. It is an important first step toward arts appreciation and a cornerstone for later youth programs.
