Young People's Concerts
Over 7,000 Anchorage area students attend the ASO Young People’s Concerts each season. These concerts are created especially for fourth, fifth and sixth grade students, to introduce them to symphonic music and, hopefully, inspire them to participate in an instrumental music program. Prior to the YPC performances teachers utilize educational packets in the classroom including CDs and fun learning activities.
The Mary and Lucian Cassetta Scholarship is a $1,000 award given to one talented high school senior pursuing advance studies at a recognized music school or music camp. Instrumentalists and vocalists are both encouraged to apply.
Coaching in Schools
Band and orchestra instructors at the middle and high school level have requested assistance to provide specialized attention to their diverse instrument groups. The ASO and the ASD have worked together to create a program which utilizes musicians from the Anchorage Symphony to visit schools sharing their musical expertise.
