The Reach for the Stars program is geared towards children in fourth to eighth grades and introduces them to a quality classical music experience performed in schools across the region and shared virtually.

Tickets can be reserved at paphilharmonic.org.

The Pennsylvania Philharmonic believes music education and the arts are fundamentally important and beneficial to the lives of all people, and uses the symphony concert experience as a catalyst for academic advancement, creativity, joy, and personal growth.

Its mission is twofold — introduce young minds to quality classical music and bring an enriching musical experience to communities around the state.

The Philharmonic’s two-pronged approach is unique among professional orchestras and its school programs account for more than 70 percent of performances.

While educational in nature, the Philharmonic’s concerts are designed to entertain and engage students in the world of art music.
