Ensemble Program

The Fort Wayne Philharmonic has a long tradition of bringing live concert experience directly to schools throughout Northeast Indiana. Nine Fort Wayne Philharmonic chamber ensembles offer in-school educational programs that include musical performances, instrument demonstration and opportunities for student interaction. Each ensemble program is designed to address the Indiana Department of Education Standards of Learning in Music and may be crafted to support multidisciplinary themes.

Elementary Schools
The Fort Wayne Philharmonic has seven chamber ensembles available to perform in elementary schools. Our ensembles represent each of the different instrument groups of the orchestra, including: strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion. Ensemble performances are typically booked for the entire school, with the musicians playing two, back-to-back, 35-minute performances in an assembly-style.

Pre-Schools
The Fort Wayne Philharmonic also offers two ensembles specifically for pre-school classrooms. A woodwind and string duo are available to perform programs specifically designed for the young learner. These 25-minute performances can be booked for individual classrooms and/or an entire building, depending on the number of students.

We are currently booking performances for the 2014-2015 school year. For more information, please contact Anne Lewellen at alewellen@fwphil.org or (260) 481-0761.
