Community Education

Visiting Artists provide music education outreach programs in addition to the Saturday Salon and Sunday concerts they perform. Chamber Music Tulsa believes that music education is critical today in light of cutbacks in art education.

Many of these expert musicians are passionate educators in their own right. While in Tulsa, they conduct workshops and master classes for thousands of children and adults, some of whom may not be able to experience this caliber of music otherwise. Most of these outreach performances are open and free to the public. Please contact Chamber Music Tulsa at 918-587-3802 or manager@chambermusictulsa.org to learn more.

Community outreach programs for the 2013-2014 season will be announced in August, 2013.
