Teaching artist, Katie Kresek, will work in classrooms to prepare students to successfully hear the marvelous pieces and thus feel the joy and revelation that makes people lifelong lovers of classical music. In the classroom, students are involved in musical activities that engage them in the artistic issues of each piece. Katie will work with up to 32 students per session and up to 4 sessions per day.
