Posted on: December 16, 2014

“The Sioux City Symphony Orchestra (SCSO) was presented the prestigious Friend of Education Award on Monday, by the Sioux City Community School District,” reads an unsigned article in Sunday’s (12/14) Sioux City Journal (Iowa). “The SCSO, as a part of its educational outreach programs, provides a 4th-, and a 6th-grade Concert for Young Audiences at no cost to Siouxland area schools. Participating school districts provide bus transportation to these ‘sold-out’ youth concerts. The concerts each host 2,500 students per performance in the Orpheum Theatre. Additionally, the SCSO has three ensembles; Woodwind, Brass, and String, who each perform for third- to fifth-graders in all of the Sioux City elementary schools. The Ensembles in the Schools program gives students the opportunity to experience a wide variety of live music and interact directly with Symphony musicians.”
