The OSBA actively works to engage and educate younger patrons. Our Youth Benefit Concert provides young aspiring musicians from our community with a chance to audition, to perform, and to learn from a Young Concert Artist. Our Youth Guild for the Performing Arts has provided generations of high school students with opportunities to serve and socialize. Our Jean Pell Music Scholarship helps musicians pursue their music education, including paying for private music lessons, music and instruments. We also offer a variety of music education classes, from Masterworks Music Detectives to Music Explorers. And we are partnering with several local community organizations to expand these programs to reach even more people, especially under-served populations, through our free lectures, after-school programs, discounts and complimentary ticket programs, and Masterclasses.
