Education & Outreach
Introduce your students to new orchestral music!
Esprit Orchestra provides students with an easy, zero-cost opportunity to do just that and enables them to meet the important composers of today and observe them at work. Esprit serves as an orchestral R & D forge for the 21st century where, through the orchestra’s Toward a Living Art Program, students will engage with the creators of leading edge, dynamic, exploratory trends in today’s music.
Esprit Education & Outreach programmes are funded by individual donors as well as the following foundations:
Toward a Living Art
