About Salvation Army After School Program
The Plano Symphony Orchestra partners with the Salvation Army and Boys and Girls Club after school program to provide music lessons and activities during the school year for PISD students in East Plano. Students participate in weekly drum circles, group piano lessons and/or recorder lessons in both the fall and spring semester. All their hard work culminates in a performance for the parents at the end of each semester.
Select students participate in an advanced class of piano and recorder. These students have progressed in the program and are ready to study the instruments more in depth. They perform at the Eisemann Center in the spring with the Chamberlain Performing Arts outreach recital as special guests. For most of them this is their first experience playing for 300 people!
