SSO Young Ambassadors

Young Ambassadors is a learning program for people aged 6 to 21 who are determined to share and explore their curiosity for live orchestral music. 

In 2017 this program was piloted with our first six SSO Young Ambassadors. Our Young Ambassadors create an active and continuing dialogue about orchestral music, its development, production and performance across the SSO community of musicians, patrons, concertgoers, academics and educators. Activities include concert attendance, interviewing artists and audience members, escorting groups to concerts and writing about music.
