Connecting With The Classics

Connecting with the Classics in Grants Pass


fosWe believe music is an integral part of a complete education. We are dedicated to our mission to offer opportunities for students, parents, grandparents and mentors to share the joy of live performance with the people in their lives.

Connecting with the Classics – Free Ticket Vouchers

This highly successful program started 17 years ago as part of the Friends of the Symphony’s mission to invite students and their parents or grandparents to live symphonic performances in Grants Pass.

Each student voucher invites a student and an accompanying adult to experience the thrill of a live Masterworks symphony performance for free at our Grants Pass venue on Sunday afternoons.

Students are invited to a free pre-concert talk by conductor Martin Majkut beginning one hour before the performance, a backstage tour of the theater and the opportunity to meet our orchestra musicians warming up for the performance.
