This award-winning, three-part program for THIRD GRADE serves as an introduction to the orchestra. Participating students from around the Oklahoma City metro will enjoy two classroom visits and a trip to the Civic Center for a performance by the Philharmonic. Each participating teacher receives access to student workbooks and a teacher guide to prepare their students for each component and track their learning progress. Visit components may be scheduled in any order throughout the current school year. This program has a limited capacity and accepts registrations on a first-come, first-serve basis. Additional schools will be added to a waitlist for the current school year.
