Something for everyone, from pre-concert lectures for the curious, to Youth Concerts for kids, and Master Classes for string quartet aficionados. Throughout the year, SFPM offers educational and outreach programs to classical music listeners of all ages.

Meet the Music

Join Music Director Thomas O’Connor one hour before each SFPM orchestra concert at the Lensic to learn more about the music you will hear on that day’s concert.

Youth Concerts

Each year, over 3,000 local students travel to the Lensic to experience the power and excitement of live classical music.

String Quartet Master Classes

Learn about the inside mechanisms of music-making in these fun and lively classes, featuring selected student string ensembles working with members of this season’s guest string quartets.

Renesan Institute for Lifelong Learning

Where are the Women? An exploration of the contributions women have made to classical music, from the Medieval Period through the 20th century.
