Guest Artist Outreach and Masterclasses

Season Sponsor: Florida Power & Light

In addition to being world-class performers, the Symphony’s guest artists are educators and community builders. Throughout the season, the Symphony’s guest artists teach masterclasses in local high schools and colleges, perform for students, and play a vital role in the community leading up to their concert appearance with the Symphony. Artists have performed recitals at City Hall, retirement communities, and schools.
